WASHINGTON - Georgetown University men's soccer team freshman Alex Muyl (New York, N.Y./Bard High School Early College) has made a name for himself before arriving on the Hilltop. The forward has had success with his academy team this past summer as well as representing the United States in international play. He will report to Georgetown next week to begin his collegiate career.
Muyl has received collegiate accolades before playing a minute for the Hoyas being named to TopDrawerSoccer.com's All-Freshman Team. This recognition came after an impressive summer.
The rookie is a part of the New York Red Bulls Academy and has been a presence within U.S. Soccer playing with the national team for his age group for more than three years.
This summer the Red Bulls won the academy championship and he received recognition as the top Major League Soccer Prospect in the academy playoffs. After a stellar academy season, Muyl was named to the Starting XI for the U-17/18 Eastern Conference.
Most recently, Muyl represented the United States on the U-18 national team in the prestigious Milk Cup in Northern Ireland. The forward started for the Red, White & Blue, and helped the team to a third place finish as well as a 1-1 draw in the semifinals against eventual-champ Mexico.
Prior to this year, he has suited up for the United States both domestically and overseas and was the captain of the U-17 squad during Mondial Minimes in 2011 in Montaigu, France. This past fall, Muyl was the top scorer for the U-18 Red Bulls Academy team and he was named to the NSCAA Boy's Youth All-America Squad. With the Red Bulls' U-16 team, Muyl was the top scorer leading the team to the national championship with the game winner. He also enjoys playing basketball and spends his free time coaching soccer. Muyl is ranked No. 17 overall by TopDrawerSoccer.com and No. 43 by CollegeSoccerNews.com.
Last season, Georgetown made history with its first-ever trip to the College Cup and a national championship game appearance. GU finished the season with a record of 19-4-3 and 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 PKs in a thrilling game against the University of Maryland.
To start the season, Georgetown is ranked No. 2 in CollegeSoccerNews.com's Preseason Poll.
The Hoyas open the camp next week.
