Corey Hertzog Selected by New York Red Bulls
Penn State men’s soccer player Corey Hertzog was selected by the New York Red Bulls on Thursday with the 13th pick in the Major League Soccer SuperDraft.
“It’s a dream come true,” Hertzog said. “New York has a new stadium and incredible fan support, so it will be a great environment.”
Hertzog led the nation last year in scoring, netting 20 goals. He decided to forgo his senior season and signed a Generation Adidas contract in order to enter the MLS SuperDraft. Generation Adidas is a program that aims to promote youth soccer in the United States by helping younger players enter MLS.
Matheus Braga, a Penn State senior that led the team in assists last season, was not drafted. He will have another chance to get picked in the MLS Supplemental Draft held next Tuesday.
