Michael Nanchoff Wikipedia
Michael Nanchoff (born September 24, 1988) is an American soccer player who currently plays for Tampa Bay Rowdies in the United Soccer League.
Before college, Nanchoff played for Walsh Jesuit High School in Ohio. He then spent four years at the University of Akron playing in three after redshirting the 2008 season. He skipped his final year of NCAA eligibility to sign a Generation Adidas contract after being named one of the top collegiate players by many sources.
Nanchoff also played for the Cleveland Internationals in the USL Premier Development League.
Nanchoff was drafted in the first round (8th overall) in the 2011 MLS SuperDraft, thereby helping Akron set a record for the most players drafted in the first round and the most players drafted overall from one school in an MLS SuperDraft. After missing the first several months of the season with an injury, he made his professional debut on June 4, 2011, as a late substitute in a 2-0 loss to Real Salt Lake.
Nanchoff was not retained by the Whitecaps following the 2012 season. On February 13, 2013, his rights were traded to Portland Timbers in exchange for a fourth-round 2015 MLS SuperDraft pick.
on July 9, 2013 Nanchoff was loaned to Swedish club Jönköpings Södra until November 27, 2013.
After splitting 2015 between the Portland Timbers first team and Portland Timbers 2, Nanchoff signed a one-year contract with an option for 2017 with the Tampa Bay Rowdies on January 8, 2016.
Both his father, George Nanchoff, and his uncle, Louis Nanchoff, played for Akron and later in the NASL. Both collected ten caps and scored a goal for the US national team.University of Akron
