In August of 2010, forward Max Kroschwitz suffered an injury that would sideline him for parts of two soccer seasons.

"It was right at the beginning of the season," said Kroschwitz, recalling the start of his sophomore year at Palisades High in Kinternsville, Pa. "I was playing high school ball when I got a right shoulder separation and some torn ligaments."

Kroschwitz was back on the field with the Players Development Academy of the U.S. Soccer Development Academy in January of 2011, but only briefly.

"Then it happened again last year that I got hurt again," Kroschwitz said. "I remember that I only played about five games of last academy season and then, I was out for most of last Academy season. It was pretty devastating."

Having fully recovered thanks to an off-season training and rehabilitation regimen, Kroschwitz is making up for lost time. His team-high 12 goals have paced the Players Development Academy's under-15/16 squad to an 11-1-1 overall record.
