The Carolina RailHawks have announced the signing of forward Zack Schilawski, who will join an already explosive offense. Schilawski played for the Wake Forest Demon Deacons before being selected by New England Revolution with the 9th overall pick in the 2010 MLS SuperDraft. A native of Cary, NC, Schilawski is a former member of the RailHawks U-23’s and the Capital Area Soccer League (CASL).
Schilawski played for Wake Forest University where he was a key part of the team that won the 2007 NCAA College Cup. He scored the game-winning goal against Ohio State in the final that gave the Demon Deacons the national championship. After an outstanding career that included 99 appearances, 40 goals and 20 assists, Schilawski entered the 2010 Major League Soccer SuperDraft.
The 9th overall pick in the MLS SuperDraft, Schilawski spent two seasons with the New England Revolution. Among his MLS achievements, Schilawski became the first rookie in MLS history to score a hat trick in his home debut. He also became the third rookie of all time to score a hat trick. In his two seasons with the Revolution, Schilawski appeared in 50 MLS matches.
“Zack is a great player with a great ability to score goals. He is a proven striker with success at every level and a lot of game experience in MLS,” said Head Coach Colin Clarke. “He will fit in nicely with our offense. We are lucky to have him come home and play for the RailHawks.”
