|#17 Blake Wagner|
Wagner signed with the San Antonio Scorpions in March 2012. He’s been playing since the age of 13 when he was identified by U.S. Soccer (U.S. National Team) through their national Olympic Development Program (ODP). He joined the U-14 National Team and was then recruited to their U-15 residency program at the IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida, where he lived and trained. Through U.S. Soccer, he completed high school a year early at the Edison Academy. Wagner travelled globally with the team and was a starter with the U-17 National team when they played in the Youth World Cup, Peru, 2005.
Wagner at first committed to playing college soccer at the University of Maryland, College Park, but instead chose to join the Generation Adidas program so that he could play professional soccer.
Wagner was drafted in the second round, 18th overall, of the 2006 MLS SuperDraft by FC Dallas. Wagner made his first appearance with FCD's first team on July 19, 2006 as a substitute in a 2-0 win against UANL Tigres. He made 12 appearances with the team during the 2007 MLS season. The 2008 MLS season was a breakout year for the third-year defender. He started in 23 of 24 games played and appeared in four of FC Dallas’ six international friendlies.
On February 2, 2010 Vancouver Whitecaps announced the signing of Wagner after he did not re-sign with Dallas. He played his first match with the second division side on July 14, 2010 and played as a left wing midfielder, netting a hat trick in a 3-1 win over Miami FC.
After a successful 2011 preseason trial, Wagner signed with the Major League Soccer version of Vancouver Whitecaps FC on March 11, 2011 followed by Real Salt Lake on August 16 of that same year before ultimately signing with the Scorpions.
