[UserField5] is coaching America's Team traveling to [UserField4]. He is currently the head coach at Embry-Riddle University. Prior to Embry-Riddle, he was the assistant coach at Idaho State University.
We want you on our [UserField4] [UserField1] team! You are invited because you are part of Coach Trujillo's recruiting database at Embry-Riddle. Every player we invite for this team is part of his recruiting database. We look for good athletes who can play multiple positions and mix and match lineups. We only carry 10 players on our teams to make sure all players get a lot of playing time...so we need athletes that can play all over the court!
What is America's Team? America's Team shows athletes the world through sports. We introduce our players to a foreign country, its people and culture...and we play [UserField1] at the same time! It's the coolest thing in the world!!!
