VESTAL, N.Y.-- Former Binghamton men's soccer standout Graham Munro, who was selected by the Baltimore Blast in the third round of the Major Indoor Soccer League (MISL) college draft last March, has reported to preseason training camp in his attempt to win a spot on the team. Munro is the first Binghamton player to have been drafted by an MISL team.

"We are excited for the opportunity Graham has and we wish him the best," Binghamton head coach Paul Marco said. "The MISL is the top indoor soccer league in the nation and the Baltimore Blast has a long and outstanding tradition of excellence."

The Baltimore Blast is the defending MISL champion and will open up its season on Nov. 7 at the Detroit Ignition. Last season marked the squad's fourth overall league title (1984, 2003 and 2004 were the other championship seasons). The MISL does not have a set date for its teams to finalize their regular season rosters.

In the four years Munro was with the program, Binghamton won the 2003 America East championship and was the runner up in 2004 and 2005. In addition, Binghamton advanced to the second round of the 2003 NCAA Tournament and was also nationally ranked by both the NSCAA and College Soccer News the past two seasons.

Following his senior season, Munro was named third-team All-America by College Soccer News. He was the first Binghamton men's soccer player to be named All-America since the program moved up to the Division I level prior to the 2002 season.

Munro, who was a three-time America East Defender of the Year, was also been named first-team all-conference in each of his four seasons at Binghamton. On the regional level, Munro was named to the NSCAA/ New York Region first team the past three seasons.
