Tarbell Called to Olympic ID Camp

Clemson junior goalkeeper and team captain Andrew Tarbell is one of 28 players to be invited to a College Identification training camp, hosted by U.S. U-23 Men’s National Team head coach Andi Herzog in Carson, Calif. 

Herzog and the coaching staff will evaluate those 28 players from around the country in advance of October qualifying for the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

“It will be great to work with this group and have a look at them,” head coach Andi Herzog said. “We have brought college players in and have seen them go on to have success with the senior team. Jordan Morris was an example of that this year. This camp is another chance to build our pool of talented players.” 

Tarbell is one of four goalkeepers invited to the camp. Joining him is Wade Hamilton from Cal Poly, Kendall McIntosh from Santa Clara and Jonathan Klinsmann, son of current U.S. Men’s Senior National Team head coach Jurgen Klinsmann. 

Total, the Atlantic Coast Conference is represented by seven players at the camp, tied for the most of any conference represented.

The camp runs Aug. 5-8 at the U.S. National Training Center in Carson.
