Former USF striker Dom Dwyer was selected with the 16th overall pick of today's MLS SuperDraft by Sporting KC. Its been a rollercoaster week for Dom, which cultivated in Dwyer becoming the latest first round draft pick for the Half-Hoops. Dwyer accepted a Generation adidas contract just one week ago and made it down to Ft. Lauderdale for the MLS Combine over the weekend. After a slow start, Dwyer ended the combine on a strong note grabbing a goal in the final scrimmage of the week.
Justin Mayhugh at The Daily Wiz, our Sporting KC site was happy with the Dwyer selection,
Dwyer, who is part of this year's Generation Adidas class, should provide instant depth for Kansas City on the wings of their 4-3-3 attack. Winger depth was one of the bigger concerns for Sporting Kansas City heading into the draft, so the addition of Dwyer makes a lot of sense. Also, the fact that he is part of the Generation Adidas class means that he won't count against Sporting's salary cap, which is another big plus.
Here's a cool video of Dwyer after being selected
Congrats Dom, and good luck with the Sporks!
