BRIDGEVIEW, Ill. – The Chicago Fire officially signed Notre Dame's Harrison Shipp, the 2013 College Cup MVP and ACC Offensive Player of the Year, on Thursday.
After playing an instrumental role in leading Notre Dame to their first-ever NCAA College Cup last month, Shipp’s signing was the most anticipated Homegrown acquisition of the MLS offseason and one that the player himself has been looking forward to for a while.
“It’s a dream come true to sign with the Fire,” Shipp told Chicago-Fire.com. “I think living in Chicago my whole life and playing with the club, it’s setting up to be a perfect situation on and off the field.”
