49ers' Salvaggione selected in MLS draft

Charlotte 49ers men’s soccer standout senior forward Chris Salvaggione was selected in the third round of Thursday's Major League Soccer's Superdraft. He was the 38th pick overall.
"It is a dream come true to be picked in the MLS draft," Salvaggione said. "Playing professional soccer is the thing that I have been working towards the past 17 years."
Salvaggione played a major role in helping the 49ers earn their first national ranking this season since 1998. He named Atlantic 10 Offensive Player of the Year as well as first-team all-conference for the second straight season.
