Kyle Martino ’99 Gives Shout-Out To Staples At MLS SuperDraft
During today’s MLS SuperDraft, ESPN2 analyst Kyle Martino ’99 talked about a decision current college players never faced, but future stars will: whether to play high school soccer, or for an Academy team.
(Starting this fall, Academy rules prohibit players from also playing for their high schools.)
The former Gatorade National Player of the Year said that he spent his junior year at the IMG Academy in Florida, but returned to play his senior year with the Wreckers.
Kyle talked about how much the experience meant to him, noting: “All the people on The Hill cheering me on — and I loved the camaraderie.”
We look forward to welcoming Kyle — one of the Wreckers’ most loyal fans — back to The Hill this fall.
