Club Career

Yarbrough's career started when he was six years old with Gallos de Aguascalientes in Mexico. His professional career would then take a big step when he was invited to tryout for Liga MX side Pachuca and would sign with the team when he was 16 years old. In April 2010 he would be loaned out for the season to second division side Tampico Madero where he would appear 38 times for the team. His next loan would be with another second division side, Titanes Tulancingo, in 2011.

The 2012-2013 Liga MX season would see Yarbrough go out on loan once again, but this time it would be to league rivals Club Leon. He did not play a single game during the 2012 Apertura season, but he would later play in nine games for Los Esmeraldas during the 2013 Clausura season. He has been a part of the team that won the 2013 Apertura and 2014 Clausura titles.

International Career

Yarbrough comes from a rather unique background as he was born in Mexico to American parents who emigrated to the country from Texas in the 1980s. This made him eligible to represent both Mexico and the United States.

He was called up by the Mexican Under-20 national team, but had not indicated at that time which country he would represent.

In March 2015, U.S. national team head coach called up Yarbrough to his first camp as the team prepared for friendlies against Switzerland and Denmark. He would come on as a second half substitute for Nick Rimando in the Denmark game to earn his first cap for the team. His second appearance would come in April 2015 against Mexico in a 2-0 win for the U.S.

I hate to be the harbinger of bad news, ladies and gentlemen, but Michael Orozco will start for the US men's national team in Jacksonville.
