WARSAW DRAFTED . . . Stanford's Bobby Warshaw was selected with the 17th pick of the first round by FC Dallas at the MLS SuperDraft on Thursday. Warshaw becomes the first Stanford player selected in the MLS Draft since James Twellman was selected by the San Jose Earthquakes in the fourth round of the 2005 draft. Warshaw was a three-time All-Pac-10 player while at Stanford and was an NSCAA first team All-American in 2009. He was twice named to the MAC Herman Trophy Watch List, including being selected as a semifinalist in 2009. In 2009, Warshaw led Stanford to the Round of 16 in the NCAA tournament with wins over Saint Mary's and UC Irvine in the first two rounds. He has scored 18 goals in his career at Stanford, despite being moved to defense for his final two seasons. Warshaw will join the FC Dallas squad that advanced to the MLS Cup in 2010, losing to Colorado. FC Dallas went 12-4-14 during the regular season and enjoyed a surprising run to the final. Warshaw will join four former Stanford players currently playing in MLS. These players include Todd Dunivant of the Los Angeles Galaxy, Chad Marshall of the Columbus Crew and Taylor Graham and Roger Levesque of the Sounders FC. Marshall was the last Stanford player to be selected in the first round, being taken in the 2004 first round by Columbus.
