McLean's Andy Riemer Drafted to Major League Soccer
Former Georgetown University star will start with the LA Galaxy this week.
If you're a Major League Soccer fan, you'll soon see a local McLean face on the national stage.
He was the team's first pick and the sixth overall in the nationwide draft.
Riemer, who turned 22 on Monday, had drawn attention at the collegiate level as a left midfielder for Georgetown University, helping the team reach the College Cup Final for the first time ever in 2012, according to the LA Galaxy.
He started all 25 games in 2012, and made 62 starts throughout his time as a Hoya, scoring 21 goals and 8 assists throughout his career.
Before attending Georgetown University, Riemer attended Georgetown Prep and played on the team there.
Top Drawer Soccer's Travis Clark writes here that Riemer is "a hard working player," who has trained with several MLS clubs in the past.
Riemer was drafted for the depth he can offer the Galaxy, the team says -- a major concern as it heads into the next season.
