    Steve Mellor is the 2001 Gatorade Pennsylvania State Player of the Year and a NSCAA High School All-American. Mellor, a native of Langhorne, Pa., is a forward from Neshaminy High School and plays for the Delco Club team.

    The reason I am asking about this guy is that he is coming to play at my Alma Mater, Appalachian State U. in Boone, NC. Anyone seen him play, or know if he is a legit player?? What is the quality of HS soccer in PA? It sounds like we may have gotten a steal...

    I hope he likes playing on a crappy old astroturf field.

    I watched the U18 FC Delco team in the Nationals last week, and didn't see a Steve Mellor playing for them. I saw several players that were very impressive though. I'd say the quality of play in PA is pretty high.

    BTW, I hear that App State is supposed to be getting a new stadium with a grass field next year.

    They've been saying for years we were going to get a soccer/field hockey stadium, but it hasn't happened yet.

    Yeah, I don't know how we get good players out to App with that turf...we even got 3 guys from the Trin and Tobago U-18 national team to come play for us next year...

    App State?

    "Yeah, I don't know how we get good players out to App with that turf..."

    my thought was how do they get good players simply because they suck...

    hs soccer sucks because of the piaa. thye just don't let the kids play. i feel the officials definately get in the way of the game. they call everything by the book. other than that i've never seen or heard of mellor.

    Re: App State?

    Lemme guess, you are either a Tarhick, a Dookie, from UNC-Gay, or a Purple Pansy Paladin??

    Either way, we've done pretty well considering we have astro-turf, we've had 3 coaches in the last 4 years, and not alot of scholarships.

    If we get a nice grass pitch (crosses fingers) we will consistently challenget UNCG and Furman (two top 25 programs) for the conference title.
