STLFC U16 Academy Player Clayton Grob Named to Dallas Cup All-Star Team


ST. LOUIS, Mo. – The Dr. Pepper Dallas Cup and adidas announced that Saint Louis FC Academy U16 midfielder Clayton Grob was selected for the 2018 Dallas Cup All-Star Team.


Clayton was one of 400 players from 20 teams in the U16 age group that competed in the 2018 Dr. Pepper Dallas Cup.  Only 18 players from those 400 total players are chosen for the 2018 Dallas Cup All-Star Team which is comprised of the top players from the United States and Canada. The 18-player squad will travel to the Netherlands and Belgium in August where they will take part in training, friendly matches, and city tours.  The team will be coached by Mike Matkovich who is the former head coach of the U-18 U.S. Men’s National Team.


“Saint Louis Football Club is extremely happy for Clayton to be selected for participation with the 2018 Dr. Pepper Dallas Cup team and are confident that his creativity and attacking insight will serve the group well during their competition in Europe this summer,” said STLFC Academy Director Blake Decker. “Clayton has grown significantly, both as a person and a player, through opportunities like this in the past having traveled twice to the Netherlands and Belgium to compete in matches with Feyenoord, Cercle Brugge and FC Volendam as well as a 10-day stint training with the Feyenoord Academy as a U14.  He is an exciting young talent and we look forward to the added growth an opportunity like this will provide for Clay.”
