WASHINGTON - Georgetown University freshman midfielder Alex Muyl (New York, N.Y./Bard) was among a 36-player pool called into training camp for the U.S. Under-20 Men's National Team by Head Coach Tab Ramos.
The camp is in Lakewood Ranch, Fla., Jan. 3-12. It is the team's second camp of the new cycle and first domestic camp. The Florida camp also features two intrasquad scrimmages.
Muyl had an outstanding season for the Hoyas ranking third on the squad in scoring with four goals and a team-high nine assists for 17 points. He also scored the game winner against Butler. The freshman's nine assists ranked him second in the BIG EAST Conference.
Muyl was a unanimous selection to the BIG EAST's All-Rookie Team. He appeared in all 21 games with 13 starts to his credit.
The roster includes 28 players with ties to the Development Academy, including 12 players who are currently registered for Academy teams.
For the U-20 group, Major League Soccer's New York Red Bulls have the heaviest ties for one club, featuring three first-team signings, one current Academy player and two former Academy players coming off their freshman collegiate seasons including Muyl and Adam Najem of Akron.
