Your chance to test your knowledge against the PDL Experts

With the 2018 PDL season just four days away, our four Games of the Week from the Eastern, Central, Southern and Western Conferences have been picked. Now you’ll have a chance to see how your predictions stand up to our PDL and Media Experts all season long, beginning with weeks one and two of PDL play!

Our Expert Picks series sees two PDL experts, a composite Media Pick made by voting from our six Media Experts and fans pick winners on four matches each week, one from each conference.

  • Colton Coreschi is the Coordinator of Communications and Social Media at the USL and currently covers the PDL.

  • Aaron Cranford is the Manager of Communications and Public Relations at the USL, has spent several years focused on the PDL and now focuses primarily on the upcoming USL Division III.

  • Our Media Experts consist of six members providing consistent coverage of various divisions of U.S. Soccer, who can be seen in the table below with their respective names and outlets.

Here’s a look at all of this week’s selections.
