USD’s Delgado, Duke Drafted by MLS Teams

Wednesday, January 23, 2013

The 2012 University of San Diego men’s soccer team’s run to a West Coast Conference title and the NCAA quarterfinal round of the playoffs marked the program’s best season in 20 years.

The year 2013, especially in the past week, has started off well for a pair of standouts from that Torero team, too. Midfielders Dan Delgado (pictured, left) and Christian Duke were selected by Major League Soccer teams in separate drafts this month.

The San Jose Earthquakes selected Delgado in the second round of the two-round MLS SuperDraft on Jan. 17. Duke, meanwhile, was the 14th overall selection by Sporting Kansas City in MLS’ four-round Supplemental Draft on Jan. 22.
