Career[edit]

College and Amateur[edit]

Duckett played youth soccer in Georgia and played for McIntosh High School where he captained the squad to a state title in his senior season. Duckett joined the Notre Dame Fighting Irish in 2007 and was the starting right back during his last two years with the school.

Professional[edit]

Duckett was drafted first in the third round (37th overall) in the 2011 MLS SuperDraft by Vancouver Whitecaps FC.[1] His versatility impressed coach Teitur Thordarson, who used Duckett, a natural right back, at centre back and left back during the 2011 pre-season.[2] The club signed Duckett on March 15, 2011,[3] and he made his professional debut on June 1 in a game against Chivas USA.

Duckett was waived by Vancouver on November 23, 2011.[4]

Duckett signed with USL Pro team Harrisburg City Islanders on March 27, 2012.[5]

Duckett signed with the MLS team New England Revolution on February 11, 2013.[6]

On February 20, 2014 Duckett signed with USL Pro club Charlotte Eagles.[7]

After the Eagles moved to the USL PDL, Duckett signed with USL side Sacramento Republic, before again moving to Charlotte Independence soon after on April 10, 2015.[8]
