MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – West Virginia University men’s soccer incoming freshman Moeryhan “Peabo” Doue was selected to the U.S. Under-18 Men’s National Team camp. The Germantown, Md., native was tabbed as one of only six defenders, 26 players nationally, to compete at the domestic training camp, which will take place at The Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif., from April 18-26. Doue joins two other Mountaineers in the 2009 recruiting class, Uwem Etuk (Herndon, Va.) and Travis Pittman (Manassas, Va.), who were previously selected to U.S. Youth National Team camps.
Doue, who signed a national letter of intent with WVU, was a standout three-year varsity starter at Clarksburg High. In his senior season, he was named a 2008 Maryland Soccer Coaches’ All-State First Team forward and also garnered All-Gazette First Team honors after leading his school to the 2A West Region Finals. He is currently playing for the D.C. United U-18 Academy Team. Last year, Doue was a Major League Soccer (MLS) U-17 Cup Finalist with D.C. United.
Doue, Etuk and Pittman are part of a recruiting class that includes midfielder Nate Adams (Frederick, Md.), goalkeeper Paul Killian (Ellicott City, Md.), defender Eric Schoenle (Yardley, Pa.), midfielder/forward Abel “Shadow” Sebele (Bulawayo, Zimbabwe), forward Matt Strauss (Wilmette, Ill.) and midfield transfer Tuan Doan (Dallas, Texas).
