Chargers SC Development Academy Player
Mason Judge starting for US U-15 National Team
Mason Judge continues to take further steps in his International Career, as he was selected for the USA U-15 National Team to play in the Gradisca Soccer Tournament in Italy from April 24th-May 1st. This marks the first International trip for the U-15 US National Team and Mason has firmly established himself as a key contributor and starter for the group.
Today, Mason had his first taste of International play, starting and playing the entire match against Slovenia. USA put in a dominant performance winning 4-0 against Slovenia in their home country. Mason didn’t put a foot wrong and was very influential in the US performance, with some crucial interceptions and key tackles. Mason’s distribution from the back also caused a constant threat to the Slovenia defense, putting two US players clean through to goal with his long range passing.
Playing two years up, Mason has been a key contributor to the Chargers DA U-16s run to the playoffs this season. His presence in the defense has proven extremely valuable throughout this season, with positive results following every performance. Mason has carried this quality and influence of his play to the National Team now as well.
