Shawn Barry, a Florida native, first gained recognition as a standout high school player in the Miami area. His success at the youth level paved the way to enrollment at the University of Virginia, a top NCAA soccer power. At UVA, Barry earned ACC All-Freshman team honors during his first season.
In 2010, the speedy right back left Virginia after two years of college soccer and signed with LASK Linz of the Austrian Bundesliga. Barry spent his first season abroad largely in the reserves, although he made two appearances late in the season. The 2010/11 campaign went very poorly for Linz, who finished dead last and suffered relegation to Austria's second tier.
Barry made the full step up to the first team in the fall of 2011, making seven starts and eight substitute appearances before Austria's winter break.
Barry has been called in to the US U-18 team, although he has never represented the country in an official youth competition.
