One of the greatest players in Marquette men’s soccer history is just getting started in the professional ranks.

Calum Mallace was drafted by the Montreal Impact as the 20th overall pick in the 2012 MLS SuperDraft, becoming the first Marquette player ever to be drafted into the MLS.

So far he’s only started one official MLS game, but in a friendly against the French team Olympique Lyonnais, Mallace scored a penalty in the shootout.

Mallace had a storied career at Marquette and a landmark 2011 season in which he took home Big East Midfielder of the Year honors and was named a first team All-American.

Mallace was also Marquette’s 2011 MVP, as he led the men’s team to its first Big East Blue Division title. He finished his college career with 39 points, including 13 goals and 13 assists. Mallace had a knack for the clutch, as eight of the goals were game-winners.

Mallace set a new standard for Marquette midfielders and he’ll look to keep his scoring touch as he tackles life in the MLS. When he gets his chance, he will hopefully make good on it, just as he did many times in his career as a Golden Eagle.
