Trevor McEachron (born August 4, 1983 in Woodbridge, Virginia) is an American soccer forward with the Richmond Kickers in the USL Second Division. He was a 2003 first team All American and spent three seasons in the Premier Development League. His father is Earl McEachron and his mother is Barbara Sheehan. Trevor has an older brother and younger sister. He received his bachelor's degree in business management from Old Dominion University.[1]

Youth[edit]

McEachron grew up in Virginia where he attended Woodbridge High School. He completed school his junior year and used his senior year to play soccer. In the spring of 2001, he joined the Chesapeake Dragons of the fourth division Premier Development League. He would continue to play for the Dragons through the 2003 collegiate off season.[2] In the fall of 2001, McEachron entered Old Dominion University, playing on the men’s soccer team from 2001 to 2005. He was the team’s MVP his freshman season. In 2003, he had played seventeen games before suffering a season ending knee injury which kept him out of the 2004 season.[3] Despite the injury, he was named a 2003 first team All American.[4] He returned for the 2005 season, earning first team all CAA recognition.

College Accomplishments[edit]

2001: Named team MVP. 2002: Selected for All-Region, All-State, All-CAA teams. 2003: Named CAA Defender of the Year. Named National Player of the Week by College Soccer News. Named CAA Player of the week.[5]

Professional[edit]

On January 26, 2006, the Los Angeles Galaxy selected McEachron in the first round (twelfth overall) of the 2006 MLS Supplemental Draft. He saw not first team games. At some point in 2006, he moved to the Richmond Kickers, but whether or not this was a loan arrangement with the Galaxy is unclear. However, he did play one game with the D.C. United reserves on loan from the Kickers reserves in 2006.[6][7] It appears he may have spent part of the 2008 season with the Los Angeles Galaxy because he did not sign with the Kickers until June 5, 2008.[8] On August 22, 2008, he played on loan with the Chicago Fire in Chicago’s exhibition match with C.D. Veracruz[9]
