In the 76th minute of a 2-0 victory over the Philadelphia Union, Harvard's Michael Fucito added his name to the growing list of Ivy League representatives in Major League Soccer. The Seattle Sounders featured his debut on SoundersFC.com.
That feature can be found here.
Fucito was drafted in the fourth round (46th overall) of the 2008 MLS SuperDraft by Seattle. Fucito only made a few appearances during the team's preseason due to a rash of injuries, but flashed the lethal finishing style that Ivy League fans came to either love or fear. He scored a goal in three matches for the Sounders.
At Harvard, Fucito was a second team All-American as a senior, leading the Ivy League in total points and helping Harvard reach the second round of the 2008 NCAA tournament. Fucito finished as the Crimson???s No. 4 career scorer with 32 goals and 24 assists and was a three-time All-Ivy First-team selection, including the Ivy League Rookie of the Year in 2004.
