2012: On March 2, 2012 the Fort Lauderdale Strikers came to an agreement with MLS side D.C. United to take midfielder Conor Shanosky on loan for the entire 2012 season. Shanosky, 20, wears the number 17 jersey, last worn by Bryan Arguez who is now with the Montreal Impact of Major League Soccer.
Shanosky made his debut with the Strikers in the opening game of the season, a 1-0 win over FC Edmonton on April 7 at Lockhart Stadium. Shanoksy completed 90 minutes as a holding midfielder, a position he made his own early in the season. More recently, Shanosky has demonstrated his versatility, filling in at center back on more than one occasion.
Professional: A graduate of D.C.’s Academy at just 18 years of age, Shanosky signed professional terms with D.C. United on August 16, 2010. He is the third player to graduate from the academy, following Bill Hamid and Andy Najar, both of whom have since gone on to represent their countries at the full international level.
International: Shanosky has represented the United States national team at the Under-20 level. He was part of the team that won the 2010 Milk Cup in Northern Ireland.
