Jan. 22, 2013

WASHINGTON - Georgetown University senior midfielder Andy Riemer (McLean, Va./Georgetown Prep) was selected sixth overall in the Major League Soccer Supplemental Draft held Tuesday afternoon. Riemer was taken by the Los Angeles Galaxy to total four Hoyas selected in the 2013 drafts following the SuperDraft last week.

The Galaxy traded up for the sixth pick to select Riemer who had trained with them during previous summers. A total of 76 players were selected over four rounds.

Riemer played a key role in Georgetown's move onto the national stage over the past four years. He began his career as a forward and moved into the midfield his senior season. He scored 21 career goals, including nine this past season, and tallied eight assists for 50 points over 82 games played and 62 starts.

The 2012 senior class, including Riemer, was the most successful class in program history. Their arrival sparked a turning point for the program as they have helped move the Hoyas into an elite class and took the team to the national championship game.

Through a national championship game appearance, a trip to the College Cup, two NCAA Tournament berths, a trip to the BIG EAST Championship game, a two BIG EAST Regular Season Championship, four-consecutive BIG EAST Tournament berths and a presence in the national rankings, including moving into the top 10 this season ranking as high as No. 3 they made their mark at Georgetown. Over four years, the seniors combined for a record of 50-23-11 overall and 24-12-1 in BIG EAST play.

Prior to this year, Georgetown had only six players in program history drafted. The highest was Jeff Curtin in 2006 who was drafted 14th overall in the second round by the Chicago Fire. The Hoyas have never had multiple players drafted in the same year.

The last Hoya to be drafted was Ricky Schramm who was selected 37th overall in the third round of the 2007 draft by D.C. United.



Riemer completed his coursework in December allowing him to spend this spring focusing on soccer.

He will report to training camp immediately which opened last Thursday for most teams.
