Career

College and amateur

Mediate grew up in Southlake, Texas, attended Carroll High School, played club soccer for Dallas Solar, and played college soccer at the University of Maryland, making 3 consecutive College Cup appearances. He ended his college career with 27 goals and 17 assists and was named to the All-ACC first team in 2004.[1] Mediate made the Atlantic Coast Conference Academic Honor Roll in 2002[2] and 2003[3] and was a four-time Academic All-District Men's Soccer Team selection[4] [5] [6]

Professional

Mediate was Columbus Crew's second pick (23rd overall) in the 2005 MLS SuperDraft. After a year with the Crew, appearing in 11 games (four starts) with one goal and an assist, he was traded to D.C. United on March 14, 2006 for a 2007 draft pick. Mediate made seven starts for the D.C. reserves in 2006, scoring a goal and logging two assists.[7] He had worked his way into United's first team, appearing in eight games with two starts (despite having to miss time due to a concussion)[8] when his right leg (distal fibula) was broken in a game against Los Angeles Galaxy on August 8, 2006. The injury required surgery and ended Mediate's season.[9] He was waived by United during the 2007 pre-season, but on June 28, 2007, D.C. United had announced that Mediate had re-signed with the club.
