Hugh MacDonald (born April 28, 1985 in Belleville, New Jersey) is an American soccer defender who was last rostered with New York Red Bulls of Major League Soccer.
MacDonald grew up in Kearny, New Jersey, and attended Kearny High School, which produced former United States internationals including John Harkes, Tony Meola and Tab Ramos. He led Kearny to the state championship game as a junior in 2001, and won the championship as a senior in 2002.
MacDonald spent two years at Virginia Commonwealth University, where he helped the team to the Colonial Athletic Association championship both years, 2003 and 2004. He transferred to Monmouth University, where he won the Northeast Conference Defensive Player of the Year in 2005 and 2006, and led Monmouth to its first ever NCAA Men's Soccer Championship appearance.
At some point, MacDonald played for the Richmond Kickers Future of the Premier Development League.
MacDonald was not drafted by any Major League Soccer club in 2007. He signed a developmental contract with New York Red Bulls in March 2007 after spending the preseason with the club. He never appeared in a first-team match and was released by the club on June 29, 2007.
