Former Eph Goalie Nick Armington ’06 has signed with Real Salt Lake in Major League Soccer. Salt Lake seems like a more fun place to hang out than Iceland, but maybe my prejudices are just showing through again. Dick Quinn provides more details:

Armington has worked tirelessly to attract the attention of the MLS including putting together a highlight tape and attending goalie workouts and tryouts with MLS teams like the MetroStars, the Colorado Rapids and Real Salt Lake. He was on the draft list for the 2006 MLS SuperDraft but was not selected.

During the Winter Study period this past January Armington even traveled to Iceland in hopes of securing a GK spot on one of their professional teams.

Good luck to Armington! Chasing a dream is an excellent way to spend your early 20’s.
