Another week another look at our GSA Exports where we track the performances of our former and current players in MLS, PDL, Reserve League and National Team duty.

Three Grande Sports Academy players, Bofo Saucedo, Brooks Lennon and Justen Glad will be unavailable this weekend vs Arsenal FC, last game of the season, as they are currently in Azerbaijan participating in the Caspian Cup.

Ricardo Velazco has had a stellar start to his PDL career and will be looking to raise the ceiling even more when he and FC Tucson take on Houston Dynamo on Wednesday in the third round of the U.S Open Cup. He and his teammate are hoping to upset the Dynamo which would be only the 5th time a PDL team has defeated a MLS side.

Stats are for all competitions unless otherwise noted (National Team, US Open Cup, MLS)
