DC United Homegrown Chris Durkin makes the leap to Europe | Youth Spotlight pres. by Target

Virginia native Chris Durkin grew up dreaming of playing for D.C. United, and that vision became reality when the talented central midfielder signed a Homegrown Player contract with the Black-and-Red in 2016.
