According to sports website Soccer America, Timothy Weah, the son of 1995 World Player of the Year and Liberian Senator, George Weah, continues climbing the ranks of the U.S. youth national team program. The 15-year-old Timothy is a member of Coach John Hackworth’s twenty-player squad heading to the 12th Tournament Delle Nazioni, hosted by Italy, Slovenia and Austria, from April 21 to May 2.
According to BigAppleSoccer.com, Timothy’s mom Clar was his 1st coach, “She knows the game a lot because she watched my dad,” the young and talented player told the publication.
Timothy has many accomplishments under his belt: in 2012, he was selected to U.S. Club Soccer’s id2 program; while playing for BW Gottschee, he made coach Hugo Perez’s U-14 U.S. boys national and returned to the U-14 squad under coach Tony Lepore in 2013 and under current U.S. U-14 coach Brian Johnson in 2014, by which time Timothy had moved to the New York Red Bulls.
