The 2021 Jefferson Cup concluded with three FC Copa Academy boys teams taking center stage at the Boys Showcase in Virginia. The boy’s teams that participated in last weekend’s showcase were the Boys 02/03 Black coached by Coach Roberto Aguas and Lori Berman, Boys 04 Black coached by Craig Smillie, and the Boys 2005 Black coached by Billy Englishby.
Boys 02/03 Black “The Jefferson Cup is one of the premier youth events in the country, and we are incredibly proud of the performance our boys displayed over the weekend. The group went undefeated over the weekend and amassed an unprecedented three consecutive clean sheets against top competition from across the country.” -Roberto Aguas
Boys 2004 Black
"The boys had a very positive experience over the course of the weekend. They were competitive in all three of their matches and created a number of opportunities. We are growing as a team, and this weekend has shown some real signs of togetherness. All three games gave us different challenges and forced us to adapt and adjust. I feel the boys reacted well to this and are definitely moving the right direction." - Craig Smillie
Boys 2005 Black
“Our 2005 boys went down to Virginia and put in a series of impressive performances against some of the best competition in the region. Our group has worked hard to get to where we are now, and these performances will serve as an excellent building block towards our spring season.” - Billy Englishby
