2012: Barklage, 25, has spent the past three seasons with D.C. United after the club selected him in the third round of the 2009 MLS SuperDraft (36th overall) out of Saint Louis University. The St. Louis, MO native has logged 341 minutes in 11 career Major League Soccer appearances. Barklage spent two seasons each on the collegiate level at the University of New Mexico and Saint Louis University. He began his college career at New Mexico, earning First Team All-Mountain Pacific Sports Federation honors as a sophomore at the school in 2006. During his senior year in 2008 while at Saint Louis, Barklage was a Second Team All-Atlantic 10 selection.
2010: Barklage’s bad luck with injury reared its ugly head again in 2010 after the midfielder tore his ACL in the 2009 U.S. Open Cup quarterfinal. The St. Louis, Missouri native played just 205 minutes in three League games for United in his second season with the team because of yet another ACL tear, this one occurring in the Black-and-Red’s international friendly victory over AC Milan on 5/26. Barklage was expected to need six months to rehabilitate the injury and should be healthy to open the 2011 campaign.
2009: Selected in the third round (36th overall) of the MLS SuperDraft, Barklage jumped off to a promising start in MLS, playing 98 minutes in four games (one start). He scored a goal in each of United’s two qualifying games for the U.S. Open Cup but his season was cut short when he suffered a torn ACL in the team’s quarterfinal game, a 2-1 win over the Harrisburg City Islanders on 7/7. In all competitions, Barklage played in eight games (five starts) and scored two goals.
2008: Barklage played for the Chicago Fire Premier (PDL) in 2008, appearing in 12 games and contributing a total of three goals and one assist.
2008: Barklage started each of the 22 games he saw action during his senior year campaign. His ten assists led the team and seven goals were second most on the squad. He was named to the TopDrawerSoccer.com National Team of the Season, NSCAA All-Mid-Atlantic Region Second Team and Second-team All A-10 Conference.
2007: In his first season with St. Louis, Barklage made 19 appearances (all starts), amassing three goals and five assists (most on the team).
2006: During his sophomore season at New Mexico, Barklage collected three goals and four assists in 19 games (17 starts). He earned first-team All-Mountain Pacific Sports Federation honors and was named to the NSCAA All-Far West Region third team. He transferred to St. Louis University after the 2006 season.
2005: Barklage played in every game for the University of New Mexico as a freshman, starting 17 of 23 games. He contributed two goals and five assists for the Lobos, who qualified for the NCAA Tournament.
