Barreiro not selected in SuperDraft, will wait for Supplemental Draft

Christian Barreiro doesn't have a job. Not yet.

The senior wasn't selected in today's MLS SuperDraft, but that doesn't mean he couldn't be playing in a professional stadium in the near future. On Monday the MLS will hold its Supplemental Draft, which offers players another opportunity to sign with MLS developmental rosters and reserve teams.

The Supplemental Draft will feature four rounds with 19 picks in each round. Princeton forward Antoine Hoppenot, who was also invited to the combine, was not drafted either.

The only Ivy player to be drafted was 2011 Ivy Player of the Year Lucky Mkosana. The Dartmouth forward was selected in the second round with the 23d pick overall by the Chicago Fire.

Brandt named Hermann Trophy Watch List [updated]

One more note from an already great preseason for the mens soccer team.  On Monday, Defender Thomas Brandt was named to the 2011 Hermann Trophy Watch List - an award given annually to the top player in mens and womens collegiate soccer.

Now a two-time captain, Brandt was a highly touted recruit when he first joined the Quakers and has not disappointed. He anchored a back line that allowed only .82 goals per game, good for second best in the Ivy League, while scoring five goals. The Palmyra, Pa. native started all 19 games last season and 16 (out of 17) the year before.

This announcement comes only days after Brandt was named a 2nd team Preseason All-American by He earned All-Ivy and All-Region honors as Penn won an NCAA tournament game for the first time since 2002.

The only other Ivy selection was Princeton forward Antoine Hoppenot, who was a Hermann semifinalist last year. Hoppenot led the Ivy League in goals last season with nine.

Update: On Wednesday, Brandt was also named one of 30 nominees for the Lowe's Senior CLASS award, an honor which recognizes players for contributions to four areas: community, classroom, character and competition. The list will be cut to 10 midseason.
