Sangre americana J3 recap

Well, here's the recap for the Mexican-Americans in Mexico. Outside obligations kept me from posting a preview of this week's action so I'll catch you up as much as possible here and now.

We had one player move up from the Primera A to the top flight as Jesus Padilla's goal against Barcelona apparently earned him some bench time for Guadalajara - well, that and Omar Arellano's injury. That honor went to the guy who may have the longest name in Mexican soccer today - Marco Jhonfai Fabian de la Mora.

Also, Marco Antonio Vidal was apparently demoted as he suited up for Indios Chihuahua (Primera A) instead of Indios Juarez (Primera Division).

Primera Division
Edgar Castillo - Played 90 minutes in Santos' 0-0 draw with Puebla
Jose Francisco Torres - Started and played 75 minutes in Pachuca's 2-1 loss at Atlante
Daniel Hernandez - Played 90 minutes in a 2-0 loss at San Luis
Sonny Guadarrama - Did not play in Morelia's 1-1 draw at America
Jesus Padilla - Did not play in Chivas' 1-1 draw with Monterrey
Michael Orozco - Is with US Olympic team

Primera A
Carlos Borja - Started and played 72 minutes in Tapatio's 0-0 draw with Tijuana
Marco Antonio Vidal - Played 90 minutes in Indios Chihuahua's 3-1 win over Monterrey
Sammy Ochoa - Will serve suspension for third and final match Monday against Academicos
Noel Castillo - Did not dress for Indios Chihuahua's 3-1 win over Monterrey

Miguel Gonzalez (ex-Revs reserve) got his second start, and played 54 min in Chetumal's 4-2 L at CA Hidalgo

I found him but the info says he's born in Mexico. Does he have American citizenship?

Id gladly keep tabs of him if he's born here or a citizen.
