Career

College

McCarty played college soccer at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill from 2004-05. He appeared in 45 games in two years, scoring 4 goals and assisting on 11. In 2005 he was named the All-ACC first team. He also played in the USL Premier Development League for his hometown club, Ajax Orlando Prospects.

Professional

McCarty playing for FC Dallas

Opting to forgo his last two years at North Carolina, he was drafted in the first round, 6th overall, of the 2006 MLS SuperDraft by FC Dallas. McCarty made his MLS debut in the 85th minute in a 3-0 loss against Chivas USA on July 1, 2006. Dax had his best season as a professional in 2007 making his first start against the Los Angeles Galaxy in a 2-1 victory on April 12, 2007. He also scored his first career MLS goal against the Galaxy on September 23, 2007. He finished the 2007 regular season leading the team with seven assists. In 2008, McCarty appeared in 17 games making eight starts for FC Dallas while recording two assists. He underwent sports hernia surgery in Germany on May 15, 2008 which limited his play during the season. McCarty played an important role in the FC Dallas 2009 season, sitting in central midfield as a deep playmaker. During the 2010 season McCarty was once again a key player for FC Dallas helping the club reach MLS Cup 2010.

On November 24, 2010, McCarty was selected by the Portland Timbers as their first pick in the 2010 MLS Expansion Draft,[2] and then immediately traded with allocation money to D.C. United for Rodney Wallace and a fourth-round pick in the 2011 MLS SuperDraft.[3] McCarty was quickly selected as captain of United and appeared in 13 league matches. However, on June 27, 2011, McCarty was traded to the New York Red Bulls in return for Dwayne De Rosario.[4]

McCarty became an instant starter for New York in central midfield upon his arrival at the club. During the 2012 season McCarty had a breakout season for New York playing as a holding midfielder. He made 33 league appearances for the club and scored three goals and set up three others. In 2013 McCarty continued his fine play for New York as he made 30 league appearances and scored four goals in helping the club to its first major title the 2013 MLS Supporters' Shield.

McCarty was named captain of New York on March 8, 2015.[5] During the 2015 season McCarty appeared in 32 league matches and recorded a career high eight assists in leading New York to the 2015 MLS Supporters' Shield.

International

McCarty was named to the United States U-20 men's national soccer team for the 2007 FIFA U-20 World Cup.[6]

He was named to the roster of the United States U-23 men's national soccer team for the 2008 CONCACAF Men Pre-Olympic Tournament in March 2008. He played in every match for the U-23 squad and was named to the All Tournament Team with teammates Maurice Edu and Freddy Adu. He was also voted to the "2008 Best XI" as a midfielder by the CONCACAF Technical Study Group.[7]

McCarty received his first international cap with the United States men's national team as a late substitute for Michael Bradley during the international friendly between Slovakia and the United States on November 14, 2009. He earned his second cap four days later in a match against Denmark. In 2010 McCarty played the last 13 minutes in a friendly against Honduras.

2011 looked to be the beginning of a more consistent McCarty role with the national team as he was called up by Coach Bob Bradley to participate in the January Camp[8] and then led the team as captain in their match against Chile, which resulted in a draw.[9]
