Baltimore, MD - Brown senior goalkeeper Chris Gomez was the 28th overall pick at the 2004 MLS SuperDraft this weekend. The 6-2 Gomez was selected by FC Dallas, which is no stranger to Brown soccer. Former Bears' standout Cory Gibbs '01 has been playing for Dallas for one year now. Gomez was a stalwart between the posts for Brown the last three seasons. He played every minute in net for the Bears in 2004, registering a 1.13 goals against average and six shutouts.
Gomez was a two-time All-Ivy and All-New England selection. In 2003, Gomez allowed just two penatly kicks in league play, leading Brown to the Ivy League Title and NCAA Tournament.
The 2004 adidas/Brown Classic's Defensive MVP, Gomez recorded a career-high 13 saves against Columbia on Oct. 2 this past season. Gomez received Second Team All-Ivy honors this season after earning First Team accolades in 2003. He was named the Ivy League Player of the Week after shutting out the #4 and #5 teams in the country at the Stanford Nike Tournament earlier in the season.
