College and amateur
Krause grew up in Holliston, Massachusetts, attended Noble and Greenough School, and played one year of college soccer at Assumption College, where he was named the Northeast 10 Conference Freshman of the Year, before transferring to Boston College as a sophomore.
Krause turned professional in 2005 with the Western Mass Pioneers, and made his pro debut on April 22, 2005, in Western Mass's 0–0 opening-day tie with the Charlotte Eagles. He scored 10 goals in his debut season, helping the Pioneers to the USL2 regular-season title.
After a year away from Ludlow playing for the New Hampshire Phantoms in 2007, Krause returned to play for Western Mass in 2008, and has gone on to be an important part[according to whom?] of the Pioneers' strike force.
Krause also has indoor soccer experience, having played for several seasons with the Massachusetts Twisters in the National Indoor Soccer League (NISL). Krause scored the first goal in the history of the NISL in the Twisters game against the Philadelphia KiXX on November 15, 2008.
