A Duke in England
We told you last week that Duke forward Mike Grella, who turned down MLS's contract offers after scoring 14 goals this past college season, was on trial at Leeds United. Today Grella registered a hat trick in a reserve match for Leeds, which has slipped to the third tier of English soccer after winning the top level as recently as 1992. As expected, an MLS team (Toronto) took a chance on him and secured his league rights through 2010 by selecting Grella in the third round of the draft.
