Charleston added a second goalkeeper to their 2020 USL Championship roster Wednesday afternoon with the signing of Darian McCauley. McCauley finished a stellar four-year career at Millersville University and has been rewarded with his first professional contract.

As a true freshman, McCauley established himself as the number one keeper for Millersville and never looked back. Starting all 20 matches for the Marauders in 2016, McCauley made 73 saves and finished as one of the best keepers in the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference.

McCauley's efforts in goal led the team to a 12-6-2 record on the year and an appearance in the PSCA Championship. McCauley avoided any sort of sophomore slump starting all 18 matches in 2017. He matched his freshman mark of seven shutouts and finished third on the team in minutes played (1,582). McCauley faced 151 shots on the year, making 52 saves while conceding just 20 goals.

McCauley was named to the United Soccer Coaches All-Atlantic Second Team his junior year, and registered career-highs in multiple categories, on the way to a PSCA Championship title. He finished the year with a goals-against average of 1.02 and a 78% save success rate. The Marauders conference championship was clinched by McCauley who made two penalty saves against West Chester, bringing a second title to Millersville.

In his last season with Millersville, McCauley made 18 appearances, logging over 1,700 minutes. McCauley made 75 total appearances in his college career winning 36 matches and keeping 22 clean sheets. He made 253 saves on route to a 1.21 career goals-against average and a 73% career save success rate.
