Dom Dwyer didn't dream of playing football in the way most American boys' dream. The mouthguard, helmet and protective padding to better hit and tackle the other team with. Dwyer didn't want that. He dreamed of playing American soccer - the rest of the world's football.
His dream became a realization on Jan. 12 during the 2012 Major League Soccer Super Draft at the Kansas City Convention Center Grand Ballroom. The convention center erupted into shrieks and applause as Dwyer became Sporting Kansas City's first-round pick. The Kansas City movers couldn't be more elated to be rooting for the 21-year-old this season.
Dwyer became the second player from England to receive a contract offer from the soccer development initiative between the MLS and U.S. Soccer. All of the Kansas City moving companies look forward to seeing what the junior from South Florida can do for Sporting. The employees at Kings Moving & Storage Inc. plan on putting on their Sporting jerseys, giant foam fingers and will chant, "ole, ole, ole," after each goal Dwyer stuffs into the back of the net.
