Remick Selected by Seattle Sounders in MLS SuperDraft

PROVIDENCE, R.I. –Brown defender Dylan Remick '13 was selected 35th (second round) by the Seattle Sounders in the Major League Soccer SuperDraft yesterday afternoon in Indianapolis. The Inverness, Ill., native is the first Bear drafted into the MLS since Jon Okafor was taken in the third round of the 2011 draft by Chivas USA.

Remick was a three-time first-team All-Ivy selection and a National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) second-team All-American in 2012, the first Bear to earn All-American honors since Jeff Larentowicz in 2004. Remick helped Brown earn three consecutive NCAA Tournament berths, including back-to-back Sweet 16 appearances in 2010 and 2011. The Bears went 12-2-3 in 2012 and reached the second round of the NCAA Tournament, where they fell to No. 2 Maryland, 2-1.

Remick, a third-team CoSIDA/Capital One Academic All-American in 2012, led a Brown defense that shut out 40 teams during his four years, including a single-season record-tying 11 in each of his final three seasons. Brown shared an Ivy League title with Dartmouth during his junior year.

A 2012 New England Intercollegiate Soccer (NEISL) All-Star, Remick started in 18 games and combined for 11 points on two goals and a team-high seven assists. He earned All-Tournament Team honors at the Brown Soccer Classic and was the Tournament MVP at the Ocean State Classic for his outstanding defensive efforts.

The 2013 MLS SuperDraft included two rounds and 38 overall selections. Several other Ivy League players could be selected in the four-round Supplemental Draft, which will take place on Jan. 22 in New York.

Former Brown soccer standout and MLS veteran midfielder, Jeff Larentowicz '05, was also acquired by the Chicago Fire from the Colorado Rapids. Larentowicz was a key player for Colorado since 2010, including its run to the MLS cup title. He played in 96 games for the Rapids since arriving by trade from the New England Revolution in 2010.
