One reply on “2014 MLS Draft Round 1 Picks (Player/Agent)”

i like the bold move by our team to go all out on a Goalie. ( hockey example, Marc andre Fleury, or however u spell it, and the many others who went number 1 or 2 and turned out to be a Star, hockey or soccer) and after some research on this kid, i think if he can make the transition to the “Pro Lifestyle”… and stay focused. i think he can be that kinda goalie, where you don’t get worried if there’s a breakaway, or when a guy gets past that last defender. most of all, coming through in clutch situations, like a shootouts for example. Hope he turns out to be a superstar, i wish em the best. Go Union!
