Sounders SuperSearch, Segment 1

It lasted about 12 minutes, including the commercial break. Pretty well done. Nice work by my friend Lisa Gangel from KING-TV. I saw the segment just moments ago on NWCN.

Hard to tell how good the three finalists looked from just a short segment and not being at that tryout in Spokane (I went to the one in Tukwila). The three finalists from the Spokane tryout were Chase Mikkelsen, Dallas Jaussi and Desmond Tachie. They are three of 10 — I know there were three from Tukwila and four from Yakima.

Mikkelsen is a big guy, Jaussi had the best “Sounders jump” in the fitness drill and Tachie scored a goal in the “A” scrimmage. The next SuperSearch installment is next Thursday.

UPDATE: Here’s the video courtesy of NWCN:
