SFC Players Martin & Nardiello Smith sign with Columbus Crew

Synergy FC standouts Blaine Martin (2002) and Francis Nardiello Smith (2001), signed with the Columbus Crew MLS DA Academy this summer, set to face the Chicago Fire on Saturday (September 16, 2017) in Columbus.
Blaine and Francis are sharing a house in Columbus and both players are gaining traction with their new team, the Columbus Crew DA Team.
The Crew Team competes every weekend in the United States Soccer Development Academy (USSDA) league.
All expenses associated with playing for the Crew (kit, flight, meals, training) are paid for by the club and are also subsidized by the US Soccer Federation. Players play a 10 month, 32 match season against other teams, MLS and other, inside the USSDA.
Francis and Blaine grew up as Synergy FC Players, both played for the Region I ODP Teams, both played internationally for Region I and for the GPS Bayern Munich National Teams in 2016 and 2017 and both have aspirations to play at the professional level.
The Synergy FC Way is doing whatever it takes to prepare players to reach their maximum potential and realize their dreams.
