Added to ballots are a quartet of retirees, and 5 builders, voting on the 2020 class begins March 18. Those added have in fact met the qualifying criteria.
New Veteran Players: Frank Klopas, Taylor Twellman, Marco Etchevery Steve Zungul. Interesting no mention is made of his time with the MISL NY Arrows, my first team or his many times named to an all league team there. Twellman joined the family business as a pro soccer player after his father and uncle.
We had prevously gone over the criteria to be nominated as a Veteran and Builder, we will not touch on them here.
Those alread on the ballot as Veterans:
Chris Armas now RBNY HC
Marco Etcheverry of early MLS DC United
Mary Harvey USWNT GK
Shep Messing NY Arrows, Cosmos, my first boss in soccer
I only commented on those that I actually know who are up for election.
Francisco Marcos founder of what is now USL
Thom Meredith, decades and still involved in biggeer international games
Kevin Payne early MLS & now US Club Soccer
