Coach Clark on Lange: "Ian is a powerful defender that has already played with the Seattle Sounders reserve team. His ability to attack balls in the air is unmatched by any youth player I have seen this year. His toughness and intensity makes him a tough defender, but he also has a great range of passing and can help start the attack. His improvement over the last year has been incredible and if it continues, he has a huge playing future ahead."
