Toronto FC made a milestone roster move last Saturday when it signed TFC 2 midfielder Themi Antonoglou to a homegrown player contract.
Major League Soccer's "Homegrown Player Rule" allows clubs to sign players from their development academies to their first team rosters. Before the rule's creation in 2008, players entering MLS had to go through one of the league's allocation processes, such as the MLS SuperDraft.
In making the announcement last weekend, Antonoglou became the 30th player to graduate from the TFC youth academy to the senior team. But what about the other 29? How did they fare with the MLS club? Where are they all now? And are any others still at the club?
In part two of a special series, TFC Republic looks at all 30 youth academy players who moved on to Toronto FC's senior team. Today, we'll examine the second group of ten players on the list, in alphabetical order. To read part one, click on the link below.
