Santa Ana’s Tristan Pacheco was selected to play in the USA National team Development games. This is an invite only event and he was selected based on his performance at the USA regional Development Camp where he had to earn his spot competing against high school kids because there weren’t many kids in his age group.
Pacheco is also a 7th grader at MacArthur Fundamental Intermediate and a participant at Santa Ana Pop Warner on Joe Ramirez’s PeeWee Football team.
