Tulsa, Oklahoma - Tulsa men's soccer standouts Dominic Cervi and Chris Taylor have been invited to their respective National Soccer Team training camps. Cervi, who was drafted by the Chicago Fire last week, has been invited to the Under-23 U.S. Olympic Team camp, while Taylor has been invited to the U.S. Under-20 National Team camp.
Cervi and Taylor helped the Golden Hurricane post a 15-3-2 overall record in 2007, as well as win the Conference USA regular season and tournament titles, and advance to the NCAA Tournament. Tulsa was ranked as high as sixth nationally this year.
A goalkeeper from Norman, Okla., Cervi played in 56 career games, posted 10 career shutouts, logged 4,846:49 minutes in goal and owned a career 1.35 goals-against average. He tallied six shutouts in his senior campaign and logged a career-best 1.11 GAA as he registered 81 saves and gave up just 21 goals in 1,710:01 minutes. Cervi was named a C-USA first team selection and earned all-tournament team honors, and was also named to the NSCAA all-Midwest Region second team.
Taylor, a midfielder from Edmond, Okla., started all 20 games as a true freshman. He tallied two goals, coming against Virginia Tech and UAB, and two assists for six points. Taylor earned Conference USA All-Freshmen Team accolades for his efforts.
