Lawrenceburg Soccer Player Helps Kings Hammer To National Championship

The U.S. Youth Soccer National Championship was held last week in Florida.

(Lawrenceburg, Ind.) - A local high school soccer star had a weekend to remember. 

Jason Cosby, of Lawrenceburg, helped Kings Hammer Academy B05 Red (KY) capture the U.S. Youth Soccer National Championship in the 16U Division. The national championship tournament was held July 18-25 in Bradenton-Sarasota, Florida. 

Eight teams made it to the National Championships. The teams were split into two groups featuring four-teams each - with the top two teams in each group advancing to the knockout stage. 

Kings Hammer went 1-0-2 in the group stage, finishing second in their group. 

In the semi-finals, Kings Hammer was a 2-0 winner over All Nations Sports Academy (TX). 

Kings Hammer then defeated Las Vegas Sports Academy in the finals by a score of 5-0. 

The US Youth Soccer National Championship Series is the country's most prestigious national youth soccer tournament, providing approximately 185,000 players on over 10,000 teams from US Youth Soccer State Associations the opportunity to showcase their soccer skills against the best competition in the nation while emphasizing teamwork, discipline and fair play.
