Petrone, a New Jersey native, went south to play college soccer at Clemson, but after one year he returned to his home state when he transferred to Seton Hall. He went on to score nine goals in his sophomore year and he played out the rest of his NCAA eligibility for the Pirates.
Undrafted by MLS, Petrone headed overseas for an opportunity to continue his career in the professional ranks. He landed a trial with Mjällby AIF, which would prove to be all he needed. He scored four goals in two exhibitions and soon after he signed his first contract in February 2011.
The forward will look to establish himself in the Allsvenskan during his first season.
Petrone's last involvement with the US national team was at the U-18 level.
