Sporting KC Academy midfielder Cameron Duke has been called in to the U.S. Under-18 National Team for a training camp at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista, Calif. from Nov. 19 to Nov. 26.
Duke is one of 24 players selected for the camp by head coach Omid Namazi. All 24 players are making their first appearance on the U-18s roster, with 19 having taken part in U.S. Youth National Teams in younger age groups.
Duke, the younger brother of Swope Park Rangers captain Christian Duke, has previously participated in three camps with the U.S. Under-16 National Team. He first joined the side in September 2016 in Davis, California before featuring at the 2016 Val-de-Marne Tournament in France a month later, playing two matches and guiding the U-16s to a third-place finish.
Most recently, Duke took part in a 10-day international training camp in Buenos Aires, Argentina in February 2017. The Olathe, Kansas native has been selected for 10 training camps at the U-14, U-15 and U-16s levels.
He joined the Sporting KC Academy in 2012 and helped the Sporting KC U-16s reach the 2015-16 and 2016-17 USSDA playoffs over the last two seasons. Duke has made eight appearances for Sporting KC's Under-17 side this season, contributing two goals as the U-17s side in third in the Frontier Division with a 5-3-0 record.
