Former UCSB Soccer Star Drafted by San Jose

Earthquakes pick up defender Greg Curry in first pick of MLS third round

The San Jose Earthquakes had a busy day during the 2008 Major League Soccer Supplemental Draft held January 24. The Earthquakes added four new players to the team’s roster as they continue to prepare for the upcoming MLS regular season. The Earthquakes acquired UC Santa Barbara defender Greg Curry, forward Adam Smarte, midfielder Tim Bohnenkamp, and defender Tim Jepson.

The Earthquakes acquired defender Curry with the first pick of the third round. In 2007 Curry played eight games and was a major piece of the Santa Barbara defense.

“Curry is a great organizer and a strong central defender” stated John Doyle, General Manager of Earthquakes. “He could be a wide defender in the league and we are looking forward to seeing him play.”

Curry is currently coaching the San Marcos Girls Soccer team.
