Junior USF striker Dom Dwyer is leaving USF after one season and will head to the MLS after signing a Generation adidas contract with the league. Dwyer was offered a contract early Wednesday according to Soccer by Ives, and Dom announced on his Twitter page that he was leaving USF late last night.
Dwyer was brilliant for the Half-Hoops in his one season at USF, scoring 16 goals and dishing out 2 assists last year. Dwyer was awarded Big East Offensive Player of the Year, and was named as a 2nd Team All-American by College Soccer News and the NCAA.
Dwyer is the 2nd USF player to sign a Generation adidas contract, joining LB Anthony Wallace who signed with MLS in 2007 and now plays for the Colorado Rapids. Dwyer will join GK Chris Blais and RB Aubrey Perry at the MLS combine which will take place January 6-10 in Ft. Lauderdale.
We wish Dom the best of luck and hope he represents USF well in the next stage of his career.
