College and Amateur
MacMath was born in St. Petersburg, Florida.
MacMath attended the University of Maryland, where he was first choice goalkeeper for three seasons, winning numerous individual awards along the way. It was during this time that he had a training stint with English Premier League club Everton. At the end of the 2010 season, MacMath was named to the Jewish Sports Review's All-America team.
MacMath started his first string of games in September 2011 due to the injury of starting keeper Faryd Mondragon. After failing to make the 2012 MLS Cup Playoffs, MacMath joined Premier League side Everton for a training stint during the MLS off-season.
MacMath led the U.S. U-20 men’s national team to the Milk Cup title, posting a strong performance that helped defeat host Northern Ireland, 3-0, at the Showgrounds in Ballymena, on July 30, 2010. The Union's first round draft pick in the 2011 MLS SuperDraft (fifth overall) finished the tournament unbeaten after recording a 1-0 victory over China on July 26. MacMath also participated in both training camps in Florida last December and January.
MacMath along with Union teammate Amobi Okugo were called up to the U-20 squad for the CONCACAF U-20 Championship in March–April. The Philadelphia Union is the only Major League Soccer team with two players represented. MacMath also trained with the U-23 Olympic squad in preparation for the 2012 London Olympics in two camps prior to qualifying.
