Submit your nominees for inaugural "Elite 11"


As you’ll see firsthand in about two weeks, we’ll be doing our season previews for each sport a little differently this year. In the past, we’ve just listed a handful of players to watch in the paper, but this will be the inaugural season of the #lohudsoccer “Elite 11” — a team made up of the the top 11 players in the area, regardless of position or age.

I’ve been compiling a list of names in recent weeks of the players who I think are the best local returners, but as I usually tend to do, I overdid it just a bit and now I have too many. To narrow it down, I’m asking for your help.

Before I mention anyone by name, I figured I’d pose it as an open question and see which guys you all come up with. So, drop a line in the comments section below or send me your nominee on Twitter @vzmercogliano. And of course, if a public forum isn’t to your liking, you can always email me at

I hope everyone enjoyed the first day of practices! Myself and a few of our reporters will be making plenty of stops this week! (More details on the practice stops coming soon…)
