Drew Moor (born January 15, 1984) is an American professional soccer player who currently plays as a defender for the Colorado Rapids in Major League Soccer.

Personal life[edit]

Moor grew up in Dallas, Texas. He has two sisters, Hailey and Leigh, and one brother, Will. Moor married Shelby Fantozzi on January 3, 2015. They welcomed their first child, Joseph "Joey" Moor, on May 31, 2016.[citation needed]

College career[edit]

Moor attended the Episcopal School of Dallas, and played college soccer for Furman University in 2002.

In 2003 Moor transferred to Indiana University, where he played for two seasons. He started every game during his college career and helped the Hoosiers to back-to-back National Championships. His last collegiate game was in the penalty kick thriller against UC Santa Barbara in the 2004 NCAA Finals in which Moor's Indiana was triumphant.

Moor was named All-Big Ten as a sophomore and a first team All-American as a junior before forgoing his final year of eligibility to declare himself eligible for the MLS Superdraft.[citation needed]

Club career[edit]

Chicago Fire Premier[edit]

Moor spent the summer of 2004 playing for Chicago Fire Premier in the Premier Development League.

FC Dallas[edit]

Moor was drafted by FC Dallas with the sixth overall pick of the 2005 MLS SuperDraft. Moor made 20 appearances, including 9 starts, in his rookie season.[1]

2006 was a breakout year for the second-year defender. He started in 21 consecutive games and set career highs in every statistical category. Moor scored his first career MLS goal on May 6, 2006 against the Houston Dynamo in a 4–3 loss.

In 2007, Moor led the team with 28 starts and scored two goals including a game-winning header against the Colorado Rapids on August 4, 2007 in a 1–0 victory. Moor made 27 appearances during the 2008 season, seven of them as the team captain. He led all FC Dallas defenders with two goals and was second in minutes played with 2,430 behind Kenny Cooper (2,622).

Colorado Rapids[edit]

On August 31, 2009, Moor was traded to the Colorado Rapids along with a FC Dallas's second round 2010 MLS SuperDraft pick and allocation money in exhangce for Ugo Ihemelu.[2]

On June 5, 2010, Moor scored his first goal in a Rapids jersey, which won the game in the 85th minute against the Columbus Crew.

On August 31, 2011, Moor finished his 68th consecutive complete MLS game, breaking the MLS record for field players held by Peter Vermes.[3]

Moor was named an MLS All-Star in 2015.[4]

Toronto FC[edit]

Following the 2015 season, Moor signed with Toronto FC as a free agent.[5] He became a key contributor to Toronto's success in the 2016 and 2017 seasons, where they reached the MLS Cup Finals both years, winning the title in 2017. However, injuries became a factor for him in his third and fourth seasons with the club, reducing his playing time. [6]

Colorado Rapids (2nd Stint)[edit]

Following the 2019 season, Moor rejoined Colorado, signing as a free agent.[7]

International career[edit]

Moor played for various youth United States national teams, and was part of the U-20 squad for the 2003 World Youth Championship in the United Arab Emirates.

In 2007, Moor received his first call up to the United States men's national soccer team, joining the team on June 24, 2007. On July 2, 2007 Moor made his international debut against Paraguay in a 3–1 loss.[8] He played for the U.S. in 2007 Copa América and started for the Men's National Team in a friendly versus Mexico on February 6, 2008 where he assisted Jozy Altidore for his first international goal.
