    homegrown player with the clubs first team. Aparicio, 17, started in seven
    matches and scored two goals for the academys senior team this season. Aparicio
    has also made five appearances for the club in MLS Reserve League play this
    season, starting in four matches. "Were very pleased to have Manny graduate from
    our Academy to our first team. Hes a terrific young man and talented player,"
    said Toronto FC president and general manager Kevin Payne. "His signing is
    further evidence of the quality of our Academy." Aparicio joined the Academy in
    October 2010 after spending one season with the Unionville Milliken Soccer Club.
    After moving to Canada with his family, Aparicio joined the North York Soccer
    Club and spent four seasons there. Aparicio was recently named to Canadas
    under-18 side that will compete in 2013 COTIF U-20 Tournament later this month
    in lAlcudia, Spain. A club may sign a player to his first professional contract
    without subjecting him to the MLS SuperDraft if the player has trained for at
    least one year in the clubs youth development program and has met the leagues
    homegrown player criteria. There is no limit to the number of Homegrown Players
    a club may sign in a given year.

    game against Philadelphia, but all signs point to Romos back injury pushing
    Kyle Orton into the starting role after two years of limited play as the backup.
    Surely Ortons name isnt the first that comes to mind for fans wanting a change
    after years of damaging interceptions, fumbles or, most infamously, the field
    goal flub when Romo dropped the snap on a kick that could have won his first
    playoff game in 2006.
