1/17/17: Gaven, Schelotto, Hejduk's

Gaven, Schelotto, Hejduk's: Are the top three Crew contemplations of the day. If you're new to the Crew... Video example of what is a Gaven, Schelotto, Hejduk .

Today's Gaven, Schelotto, Hejduk's:
1. Crew Select Two More Players in SuperDraft
2. Afful and Ghana Get Going
3. Ola Kamara on ESPN FC

Quote of the Day:

"Got an alert on my phone, also on twitter, that I was selected by Columbus Crew SC. I was basically speechless. Lifelong dream to play in MLS. I was really just speechless. Gave my coach a hug and called my parents right away." -Connor Maloney on his 3rd Round selection with Crew SC

1. Crew Select Two More Players in SuperDraft

The Columbus Crew selected a stocky, 5'6 forward named Connor Maloney in the 3rd Round today and followed that up with goalkeeper Logan Ketterer in the 4th.

26 goals in 73 starts at Penn State for Connor.

6'3, 187 pound goalkeeper in Logan, which I like.

Would not be mesmerized if one surprises and/or both find their way on the roster.

2. Afful and Ghana Get Going

If you missed out...

Which has them sole first in their group.

Unfortunately, Johnathan Mensah was one of two starters that began on the bench today with Acquah. Will be tough to change that with the resulting shutout.

Ghana could play better but did enough in the first half.

Harrison Afful played well. No mistakes, good passing, and a free kick cross 2nd half that should've led to Ghana goal #2.

3. Ola Kamara on ESPN FC

Nice to see him and very interested to see how he does from the start of a MLS season.

Considering him and hopefully a much more improved defense. 2017 could be better than alright.
