It was a very good weekend for Reading United and their goal scoring ace, Deshorn Brown. The
temperature at kickoff at Albright College's Shirk Stadium was 94 degrees, but nothing has been
hotter than a Reading team that has re-discovered their scoring touch, thanks in large partÂ to
Brown hitting the back of the net four times this weekend.
Much has been made of the record breaking selection of seven players from the University of
Akron in the first round of the MLS SuperDraft.
Rightly so. After all, five of them were among the first eight picks in the draft.
That coach Caleb Porter and his staff have gotten it right when it comes to player development
is only underscored when you recall that five of this year's Generation adidas class of nine also

Sporting Kansas City's Manager Peter Vermes comments on players taken in the 2011 MLS Super
Draft:CJ Sapong - James Madison University - Forward - 1st round (10th overall) We had two guys we
had identified for the tenth pick, one was Sapong and one was Jalil Anibaba. So we were interested
in both and both could fit.
Well things kind of went the way that many people kind of expected it today, plenty of people last
night were predicting that Jalil Anibaba and AJ Soares would be off the board when KC picked at the
