Good Luck, Gentlemen…

As per the official team blog, here are the Wizards’ selections in the 2008 MLS Supplemental Draft:

11thPat Healy from Towson State.
          – Chicago Examiner article on his hopes to play in MLS.

25th M/F Vicente Arze from Mercer.
          – Macon, Georgia’s WMAZ article on his signing with USL side Vancouver Whitecaps.

39th F Tom Gray from Monmouth.
          – Pro Player Pipeline evaluation: “NEC 2nd team; 6g,4a in 19/19 games; almost 4 year starter; assist productivity waned with the graduation of Steven Holloway last year.”

53rd GK Andrew Kartunen from Stanford.
          – Buzz Carrick at 3rddegree evaluation: “A player that was on last year’s list and I am glad to see invited to the MLS Combine.  Kartunen was building a strong career at Stanford and with various Youth national teams until his 2006 senior year was lost due to a shoulder injury prior to the campaign.  With a medical red shirt for 2006, Kartunen returned in 2007 with high expectations only to lose half his 5th year with a concussion.  The 6’1” netminder was named Pac 10 Honorable Mention in 2007 despite only playing 8 games due to his 0.56 goals against average.  Kartunen was a member of the US U20 team that went to the 2005 Worlds.”

  1. I’m wondering if Kartunen has an injury prone rap that caused him to fall.
