Marlon Hairston graduated from IMG Academy in 2012 and signed with one of the most respected soccer programs in the nation, the University of Louisville. Hairston quickly established himself within the team and had a great freshman season. Marlon added another accolade to his season when he was called up to the U.S. U20 National Team training camp as they prepare for the 2013 FIFA U-20 World Cup. Recently, Hairston made the cut for the U20 22-man roster for the 2013 Toulon Tournament, held in Toulon, France, May 28-June 8. Midfielder Hairston, a native of Jackson, Miss., will take the field during the 41st edition of the Toulon Tournament. The event features 10 countries placed in two five-team groups. The USA is in Group A with Colombia, Congo DR, South Korea and host France. The U.S. opens the tournament against France on Tuesday, May 28, at Stade Léo-Lagrange in Toulon. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. local (1:30 p.m. ET). The group stage features four games, after which the group winners face each other in the championship match and the group runners-up meet in the third-place game. Both matches take place on Saturday, June 8.
