    RIASA Provided Professional Training Opportunities for its players

    In addition to the professional showcase games, the RIASA football director made arrangements for several of the RIASA players to have opportunity to spend training time with professional clubs. These opportunities took place at Carlisle United (Nahki Wells), Huddersfield (Joey Spivack NJ and Akil Howard MA) and Celtic (Christian Eissele, FL).

    Nahki Wells, became the first RIASA player to be signed as a professional by Carlisle Untied (League One), after his first semester in the academy. Nahki became a standout player for Bradford City FC, and now plays for Huddersfield Town FC in the Football League Championship.

    Christian Eissele (Florida) followed Nahki Wells into the professional ranks in March 2012 with Joey Spivack (New Jersey), and Jae Yun Lee (S.Korea) in May 2013.
