Meet pro soccer phenom Drew Moor, ESD grad and dad

Drew Moor

What he’s up to now: 

“Don’t let Toronto FC defender Drew Moor’s good-guy nature fool you,” writes a Sportsnet.ca columnist. “He can be ruthless.” Moor, 35, sports No. 3 for the Reds, is 6-feet tall and weighs 165, according to torontofc.ca. Before Toronto, he played for Chicago Fire Premier, FC Dallas and Colorado Rapids. Moor competed for the ESD Eagles from 1999 to 2002 and played college soccer for Furman University before transferring to Indiana University in 2003, where he helped the Hoosiers win back-to-back national championships. Named All-Big Ten as a sophomore and a first team All-American as a junior, he declared himself eligible for the MLS SuperDraft. He is married and has two boys, Joey and Ryan.

Three things to know

”In the power rankings of all-time nice guys in the history of Toronto FC, Moor probably tops the list,” says John Molinaro at Sportsnet.ca. He has a broad smile, little ego and takes time to chat with guards, janitors and cooks.

2 He suffered a “significant quad tear” in April 2018, according to missoccer.com. But he’s healed. “Veteran defender and stabilizing force Drew Moor will return looking to put an injury-plagued year behind him.”

3 He enjoys tweeting about his children: “My boys seem to like @BlippiOfficial [educational videos] more than me…” and “If you can put gloves on a toddler so they stay on for more than 37 seconds, You. The.  Real. MVP.”
