Three local players at USL Pro Combine
All-Premier Development League defender Dillon Barna and consistent PDL scorer Tyler Reinhart are among 102 players participating at the United Soccer Leagues' player combine this weekend in Bradenton, Fla.
The USL Pro Combine, designed to unearth players for the Tampa-based organization's top league, includes scouts from Major League Soccer and other professional clubs.
Barna (Westmont College), a 6-foot-4 center back, was a standout last season for the PDL's Ventura County Fusion. Reinhart (Cal Poly Pomona) was key for Southwest Division champion Fresno Fuego's attack.
The third local player is midfielder Adrian Avila, from MiraCosta College in Oceanside. He played for the Orange County Blue Star.
The USL Pro, a third-division league, includes the L.A. Blues, who play their home games at Cal State Fullerton.
