Revs Add Three in Supplemental Draft

SuperDraft’s little sister, Supplemental Draft, came out to play via conference call on Thursday, with the Revs selecting three collegiate players amid the fun.

On tap in the first round (12th overall) was goalkeeper Phil Marfuggi out of Clemson. Marfuggi posted a1.29 goals against average in 15 starts for the Tigers in 2006. He was also named a Preseason All-American by Soccer America after a stellar 2005 campaign that included a miniscule 0.85 GAA and 89 saves.

During the second round (25th overall), defender Gary Flood was taken out of Hofstra. The senior captain helped anchor a Pride defense which recorded seven shutouts in 2006, all while playing alongside his younger brother, Chris.

In the third round (38th overall), the club selected Chris Loftus out of Duke. Loftus, a tall (6-5) midfielder/forward, scored five goals and recorded three assists (13 points) for the Blue Devils in 2006.

With one remaining pick left, the Revs appearing to have their fill of up and coming talent, passed on a their fourth round selection.
