Men's Soccer Signs Six to National Letters of Intent

Hoyas are in the midst of spring play

Brian Gill is in his fifth season on the Hilltop and has been instrumental in the success of the program. He serves as the recruiting coordinator as well as an assistant coach helping with all aspects of the game.

Last year, the Hoyas returned to the NCAA Tournament as the sixth overall seed eventually falling in the Sweet 16. Along the way, the Blue & Gray won the program's fourth BIG EAST Regular Season Championship, advanced to the semifinals of the BIG EAST Championship and spent the entire season in the national rankings. The squad set a new program record in shutouts with 12 and led the country in shutout percentage (0.67) as well as ranking second in save percentage (0.884) and team GAA (0.46).

Individually, the Hoyas had two All-Americans in Steve Neumann and Brandon Allen. Neumann went on to be the No. 4 overall draft pick in the Major League Soccer SuperDraft and classmate Joey Dillon followed in the third round. In the BIG EAST, the team garnered five All-BIG EAST honors and had the Offensive, Midfielder and Goalkeeper of the Year as well as the BIG EAST Coaching Staff of the Year, the latter marking the second time in Gill's career.

When Georgetown broke onto the national stage was in 2012, which will be remembered as the most successful in program history. The Hoyas went 19-4-3 with a mark of 6-2-0 in the BIG EAST Conference. The squad was the third overall seed in the NCAA Tournament and the 19 wins were the most in program history. The Hoyas were the BIG EAST Blue Division Champions, the BIG EAST Championship runners-up and advanced to the national championship game in penalty kicks in a thrilling game against the University of Maryland after Georgetown began the season unranked.

Individual accolades followed as a record four players were drafted by teams in the MLS including three Hoyas earning a spot in the MLS SuperDraft. Neumann was a MAC Hermann Trophy Semifinalist and earned College Cup Most Outstanding Offensive Player, while Allen was named the BIG EAST Rookie of the Year as well as the national rookie of the year by a number of outlets. GU had two All-Americans as well as six All-BIG EAST honorees. Georgetown boasted its well-rounded student-athletes with Keon Parsa earning the Elite89 Award, given to the student-athlete at the College Cup with the highest GPA.

In his tenure at Georgetown, Gill has coached five All-Americans, 13 regional All-Americans, five BIG EAST Players of the Year and 16 All-BIG EAST honorees as well as the College Cup Most Outstanding Offensive Player. On the academic side, GU has had one BIG EAST Scholar-Athlete and one Elite89 Award winner.

The team has seen unprecedented success with three NCAA Tournament berths. The squad has also won three BIG EAST Regular Season Championships, been ranked among the top 25 in all four seasons and made a trip to the BIG EAST Tournament championship game.

Gill served an assistant coach at Seattle University for one season helping build the program in its first season of Division I in 2009. Seattle finished the season in the top four in the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation that year.

He was also an assistant coach at Lafayette College in Easton, Pa., for two seasons prior as the Leopards reached the Patriot League Conference Tournament in 2007 and 2008.

Gill was a two-time team MVP at Rider University, helping the team reach the MAAC championship game in 2000 and 2003. He also played goalkeeper for the Brooklyn Knights of the USL's Premier Development League from 2001-03.

Gill has a USSF 'B' License as well as an NSCAA Advanced National Diploma and a National Goalkeepers Diploma.

He is currently working with Bethesda-Olney Academy which is part of the United States Soccer Development Academy.

Gill graduated magna cum laude from Rider with a degree in secondary education and history. He is working toward his master's degree at Georgetown University in sports industry management.

Gill resides in Arlington, Va.
