    Nice. Can you tell if it was with a strong team or a reserve based team?

    Also are these the only games that Hertha are playing? Or are there others and Brooks just hasn't appeared in them?

    It's the first team and some of the players who play for the reserve team made the bench.

    This is just the second preseason friendly Hertha has played since camp started about 2 weeks ago, both Morales (180 min) and Brooks (135 min) have played in those 2 friendlies. Also Hertha Berlin will play a friendly against Juventus on July 28 so that will be interesting.

    Brooks is getting good minutes with Hertha's 1st team so far in the preseason.

    Good news. He's a good prospect but he just grew a ton last year and lost a little coordination. He's now 6'5 but apparently playing well.

    The post said he grew a ton last year and is now 6'5". I'm trying to figure out how big of a growth spurt he had. Growing 2" isn't a big deal compared to growing 6 or 7".

    When I first heard of him last year around July I read that he was around 6'4 or 6'5 ft tall.

    I'm not sure if I'm not conveying my question right or what. I'm trying to figure out how big of a growth spurt this was. What was his height BEFORE this spurt? :)

    This is an German article of Alfredo Morales and John Anthony Brooks hoping to make the 2014 WC team for the USA

    http://www.berliner-kurier.de/herth...ha-bsc-berlin-zu-klinsi,7168990,16574174.html


    From Google Translate:

    Morales & Brooks, 2014 World Cup dream

    About Hertha to Klinsi

    BERLIN -They carry the Hertha flag on the chest. But they are keen on another flag - the Stars and Stripes of the United States. Alfredo Morales (22) and John Anthony Brooks (19) to go with a new courage in the second division season. The young professionals knows that U.S coach Jürgen Klinsmann has them in its sights. The dream is the World Cup 2014 in Brazil.
    The U.S. Soccer Web site reported socceroverthere.com that can make both Hertha hopes of a commitment to the United States. Will be given opportunities when they play in coach Jos Luhukay in the second division.
    Defender Brooks, who currently plays in the U20 of the United States, laughs: "Of course one would like that. But now I want to succeed in this only once. "Last season did Achilles problems to create a German-Americans. "It is only since the winter break, I was fit again." He lies in wait for his first professional use.

    Fullback Alfredo Morales, a German-Peruvian with U.S. passport (his father was GI), then a few steps ahead. Morales was eight times in the Bundesliga last season there."The new coach, I'll give gas to play as much as possible in the second division. So far I'm only in the extended circle of the U.S. team, "says Alfredo.

    But he has a date fixed in the head. "In August, the United States plays against Mexico," He is waiting for a call from Klinsmann.Maybe true for both in two years, a World Cup dream.

    I don't think so. He was about 6'4 last august. But he shot up a little more. He might be 6'5 1/2. But at least 6'5.

    He's a monster. I don't know if that's good or bad. Hope he finally gets his chances this season.

    In that article it says the new coach at Hertha will give him a chance, I will be happy if he at least gets some PT as a sub.

    He's gigantic. Hopefully, if all goes well, he could turn into Gooch with some passing ability out of the back.
