Seeing Double (GW Today feature 10/19/10)
HIGH SCHOOL & CLUB
Identical twin brother of GW recruit Casey Wood ... Opted to compete year-round with club teams during four scholastic seasons ... Three-year starter for Chicago Sockers FC from 2006-08, led squad in scoring in 2008 ... Played for Chicago Magic Academy in 2009-10, helping club to national semifinals under coach Raul Diaz Arce, former DC United and MLS forward ... Helped club teams to three State Cup titles and two regional final appearances ... Two-year participant for Illinois ODP.
Tobey Cooper Wood ... Born Jan. 23, 1992 in Chicago, IL ... Son of Scott and Karen Wood ... Has older sister, Lindsey, and identical twin brother, Casey ... Aspires to be a lawyer or investment banker and intends to major in pre-law.
Lidster's Take: "Like his twin brother, Tobey could play in defense or midfield and will compete for action at both positions."
