Cody Sunquist had just returned from a hectic three week tour of training with Fiorentina in Italy, Liverpool FC in England, and the USSF U14 National team at the Home Depot Center in Los Angeles, when he got the call he has been chosen to travel with the U14 National team to Croatia for an International Tournament at the end of May. While the family was busy celebrating and making new travel plans, the phone rang once again.
Liverpool FC called to see if Cody was available to come back to Liverpool and train with them for a full month in July. Without too much hesitation the Sunquist’s all said, “YES!”
“What an absolutely incredible opportunity and experience that will be for such a young man,” said Placer Boys DOC, Paul O Brien. “For everybody involved at Placer United, we feel extremely proud of Cody as this is a great achievement not only him but for the Club as well. O’Brien reached out to Liverpool Academy staff about taking a look at Cody when he was done training in Italy. Liverpool agreed to take a look and called after Cody’s first training session and asked to keep Cody for a few days longer. Liverpool Assistant Academy Manager, Phil Roscoe, said, “After looking at Cody playing and working alongside our players in the Academy, Paul and the Placer United coaching staff should feel proud of doing a really good job in the development of this player. We look forward to continuing our relationship with Placer United.”
