Ten FC Dallas Academy Products in 2016 NCAA College Cup

The first round of the 2016 NCAA College Cup begins on Thursday and ten FC Dallas Academy products attend schools that have made it to the final 48. Here's who to watch out for:

Reggie Cannon - UCLA

The defender was part of last year's U-18 National Championship team and as a true freshman has started every single game for the Bruins in 2016. UCLA hosts Colgate in the opening round on Thursday at 7 p.m. CT.

Patrick Khouri and Nick Rochowski - University of New Mexico

Khouri, a redshirt sophomore midfielder, has started every game for the Lobos over the last two seasons - including 20 games in 2016. Rochowski, a redshirt senior defender, played every single minute of the 2015 season and all but 7 minutes of the Lobos' 2016 campaign. 

New Mexico will host Portland in the first round on Thursday night at 8 CT.

Kris Reaves - University of Portland

On the other side of the New Mexico-Portland match-up, another FCD Academy product will also be in action. Reaves, a junior defender, has started 16 matches for the Pilots in 2016. 

Kamar Marriott - Florida Gulf Coast University

A junior, the midfielder has a goal and two assists in 18 starts in 2016. FGCU travels to face South Florida in the opening round Thursday at 6 p.m. CT.

Ryan Barlow - University of Denver

After redshirting his freshman season in 2015, Barlow has appeared in 12 matches as a sub in 2016 totaling 251 minutes. The Pioneers will face the winner of Thursday's UNLV-San Diego State match-up on Sunday. 

Giovanni Montesdeoca and Martin Salas - University of North Carolina

Montesdeoca, also a member of last year's U-18 National Championship, has redshirted his freshman year. Salas, the older brother of current U-18 Academy player Mark Salas, appeared in three games during his freshman season in 2015, but has missed the entire 2016 season due to injury. 

Their Tar Heels await the winner of the FGCU-South Florida first round match-up, who they will play Sunday. 

Matt Karasinski - University of Tulsa

The freshman goalkeeper has been waiting his turn this season, playing back-up to senior Jake McGuire and his 0.99 GAA. Karasinski's Golden Hurricanes will face Creighton in the opening round Thursday night at 7 CT. 

Charlie Furrer - Stanford University

A redshirt freshman, Furrer is the third-string goalkeeper for Stanford, who awaits the winner of Thursday's Cal State-Northridge and Pacific match-up.
