We couldn't get a Khiry and Mix reality show. Maybe we get Harrison and Lewis, with Mumsi as a special guest.

This is probably a stupid question but is he our first player to be named on a us u20 team?

Anyways sucks he will miss time but happy we have a player skilled enough to make the team and wish him the best in qualifying. High hopes for this kid.
U20, Yes. (As stated below, the only active NYCFC player to make the squad). (The only other active NYCFC player to make a youth national team)...

Khiry Shelton was on the US U23 CONCACAF Olympic Qualifying Tournament team in 2015 (since there's no U23 WC). That team came in third place in CONCACAF and lost 3-2 on aggregate to Colombia in the tiebreaker.

Yes, first active member.

Others to make the youth national team:
Khiry: U18 & U23
Sands: U17 - technically both brothers since the residency is the 17 player pool
Grabavoy: U20
Wingert: U23
Mix: U20 & U23

We play five games in three weeks during the duration of the U20 World Cup. I think Vieira had a phone call with Tab Ramos asking how much Lewis would be in his lineup and tactics. Based on Ramos' answer, Vieira would likely use Lewis more than Ramos would use him, so Vieira asked to keep him for squad rotation.
