Jan. 22, 2013
On Tuesday (Jan. 22), men's soccer senior Marc Cintron (Piscataway, N.J.) was selected 34th overall in the Major League Soccer (MLS) supplemental draft by the New York Red Bulls.
Cintron, who was one of 54 seniors invited to the 2013 adidas MLS Player Combine in January, started 69 matches while scoring eight goals and notching 20 assists for 36 career points with Providence. His 20 assists rank fifth in program history.
A 2012 M.A.C. Hermann Trophy Watch List nominee, he was a 2011 NSCAA All-Northeast Region First Team Honoree and also earned All-BIG EAST Third Team honors last year. He played an integral role in Providence's run to the BIG EAST Championship game in 2010 and also assisted on the game-winning goal versus Dartmouth in 2011 NCAA Championship first round play.
Cintron becomes the third Providence product to become a part of the New York organization. Former Friar goalkeeper Chris Konopka '07 signed with the Red Bulls in 2011, while former Providence midfielder Ryan Maduro '09 signed with the organization in 2012.
MLSsoccer.com wrote about the Red Bulls' performance in Tuesday's draft: The New York Red Bulls entered Tuesday's Supplemental Draft badly in need of depth everywhere but up top. And that's exactly what they came away with. They took local product Ryan Clark from Monmouth, who can play left back and left midfield, with the first pick of the Supplemental Draft, then Boston University's Michael Bustamante later in the first round, and added Providence winger Marc Cintron in the second round. All three had made regular appearances in mock SuperDrafts from last week, and all three have a real shot at sticking on a team that's spread thin in the midst of an offseason overhaul.
