May 14, 2012

WASHINGTON - Georgetown University Head Men's Soccer Coach Brian Wiese announced the 2012 team captains on Monday. Joining 2011 junior captains Ian Christianson (Cedar Rapids, Iowa/Christian Life) and Tommy Muller (Altamonte Springs, Fla./Trinity Prep) are senior Jimmy Nealis (Massapequa, N.Y./Massapequa) and junior Steve Neumann (New Hope, Pa./Council Rock North). The four will lead the 2012 squad which will open fall play on August 24.

Christianson and Muller served as team captains this past season where the Blue & Gray went 10-5-4 and had a mark of 5-3-1 in BIG EAST Conference play.

Christianson was a Second Team All-BIG EAST honoree in 2011. He was second on the squad in scoring with six goals and one assist for 13 points after starting in all 19 games this year. The midfielder had three game winners on the season and went 3-3 on penalty kicks. His goal in double overtime was one of his game winners to defeat the Michigan State University Spartans. Christianson earned a spot on the weekly honor roll and was named to the TopDrawerSoccer.com Team of the Week. Christianson was also named Second Team All-BIG EAST as a freshman. Two years ago, he was an All-Region and All-American honoree a season ago as well as First Team All-BIG EAST and the BIG EAST Midfielder of the Year.

Muller is a second-year captain after the defender had another outstanding season. He was named the BIG EAST Defender of the Week in 2011 after helping Georgetown to four-consecutive shutouts. This past season, Muller started all 18 games he appeared in with one assist to his credit. Georgetown posted seven shutouts and allowed just 19 goals the entire season.

Nealis is another three-year starter on the Hoya backline. He managed three assists this past season and was part of the talented backline along with Muller.

 

 

Neumann is the lone junior and the 2011 team MVP. He was named to First Team All-Northeast Region from the NSCAA and First Team All-BIG EAST. The midfielder ranked first on the team in points scored with 29 tallied on 11 goals and seven assists. Neumann started in all 19 games for the Hoyas and had six game-winning goals to his credit. He was first in the BIG EAST in game-winning goals and second in points, points per game, and goals per game. He was third in the BIG EAST in goals and fourth in assists and assists per game.

GU returns its top five scorers for next season and is bringing in one of the best recruiting classes in program history. Preseason is scheduled to begin August 5.
