Former Harvard All-America forward Michael Fucito '08-09 recently made his Major League Soccer debut while playing for the Seattles Sounders FC in a regular-season game against the Philadelphia Union in Seattle, Wash., March 25.

The Sounders made a feature video of his debut, which can be found here.

Fucito, an All-America second-team selection as a senior with the Crimson, led the Ivy League in total points and helped guide the Crimson to the second round of the 2008 NCAA tournament.  A three-time All-Ivy League first-team honoree and the conference's Rookie of the Year in 2004, Fucito finished his collegiate career as Harvard's fourth all-time leading scorer with 88 points on 32 goals and 24 assists.

Following his senior season, Fucito was selected in the fourth round with the 46th overall pick at the 2009 MLS SuperDraft by Seattle.
