Fire Fri Jan 15 2010

Five Strong Players Join the Fire

Yesterday's MLS SuperDraft yielded promising results for the Chicago Fire. With their first round pick, the Fire snagged Generation adidas player, Corben Bone, from Wake Forest University. Bone was also a 2009 Hermann Trophy finalist, two-time NSCAA All-American First Team, Top Drawer Soccer National Player of the Year, two-time First Team All-ACC and 2009 ACC Offensive Player of the Year.

On top of scooping up Bone, the Fire also selected four other strong players whose fresh talent should compliment the experience and heart of the team. The Fire picked Kwame Watson-Siriboe from the University of Connecticut, Drew Yates from the University of Maryland, Steven Kinney from Elon University, and Sean Johnson from the University of Central Florida.
