U.S. Soccer announced on Friday that Austin FC Academy midfielder Micah Burton has been invited to the upcoming U-17 U.S. Men’s National Team training camp, taking place from January 18-25 in Bradenton, Florida.
“It is always an honor for a player to be called in to a USYNT camp, and we know that Micah was pleased to receive news that he was called in for a second time to represent himself and Austin FC Academy,” said Austin FC Academy General Manager Tyson Wahl. “These opportunities motivate players to elevate their level and also pave the way for more Austin FC Academy players to take similar steps.”
A dynamic and skillful midfielder with the ability to create space and make dangerous passes, Burton joined the Austin FC Academy in July 2020. He became the first Austin FC Academy player to be called in to a U.S. U-17 National Team training camp in October and trained with the team at a November 2021 event in California.
