University of Maryland soccer standout Drew Yates, a Severna Park native who spent two seasons at Archbishop Curley, was chosen as the 29th pick in the second round of today's Major League Soccer SuperDraft by the Chicago Fire.
The midfielder-forward started all 23 games for the Terrapins in his senior year this fall, scoring five goals and adding three assists to earn second-team All-ACC honors. In his four-year college career, he appeared in all 92 games and finished with 14 goals and 13 assists.
Yates spent his first two high school years at Archbishop Curley before moving on to the U.S. Soccer Residency Program for one year and then graduating at DeMatha. He also was a member of the Casa Mia Bays club team, which won two national championships.
