Ex-Cal star gets U.S. tryout 

Steve Purdy, a former second-team All-America defender at Cal, has been invited to the U.S. men's soccer team camp, coach Bob Bradley said.

Purdy, who plays for 1860 Munich in Germany, is one of 21 players on the initial roster for the Americans' match Wednesday against Switzerland.

"This is a tremendous accomplishment for Steve and the Cal soccer program," Golden Bears coach Kevin Grimes said in a statement released by the school. "This is the highest honor a soccer player can achieve, to be called in to represent their country at the highest level. The current Cal players and fellow alumni are all very proud of Steve."
