The William and Mary men’s soccer program has a rich tradition of developing talent and sending its players into the professional ranks both within the United States and abroad. The Tribe has sent 33 players into the professional ranks, including 19 student-athletes drafted by professional leagues. Of those players that have gone on to play professionally, eight were drafted into the top division in the United State’s Major League Soccer (MLS).

In 2011, Alan Koger was selected in the third round of the MLS SuperDraft by the New England Revolution. Koger capped his career with the Green and Gold with a spectacular senior season. In 2010, Koger was a force for the College, leading the Tribe with nine goals and 20 points. Koger’s nine goals were the third-most in the CAA, while his 20 points also ranked him third in conference. Both College Soccer News and Top Drawer Soccer named Koger National Player of the Week on October 25 after scoring all four of the Tribe’s goals in its victories over James Madison and Delaware. For his career, Koger tallied 68 points on the strength of 29 goals and 10 assists. Koger ranks in the top-10 at the College in career shots (190) and career game-winning goals (9). Koger’s five game-winners in 2010 rank him in a tie for third in school history.

Andrew Hoxie finished his stellar career with the Green and Gold with a spectacular senior season. Hoxie was tabbed a Third-Team All-American by the NSCAA and was named the CAA Player of the Year after leading the CAA in goals (10), assists (12), and points (32). Hoxie was taken in the third round with the 37th overall pick by the San Jose Earthquakes and later signed a professional contract with the Rochester Rhinos of the USSF Division II Pro League.

Also signing a professional contract after the 2009 season was Roger Bothe. Bothe inked to play for the Richmond Kickers of the United Soccer League Second Division. Bothe was a stalwart on the Tribe’s defense for his entire career but his best season came in 2009, when he was named All-CAA Second-Team, notching five assists and helping the Tribe record five shutouts.

Wade Barrett, who has achieved success both within the U.S. and abroad in professional soccer, has won three MLS Cup Championships, while playing with the San Jose Earthquakes in 2001 and the Houston Dynamo in 2006 and 2007. He captained his last two Dynamo squads to back-to-back titles. Barrett, who is currently the captain of the Dynamo, has spent nine seasons in MLS with San Jose and then Houston. Barrett has appeared in and started over 200 matches for the Dynamo. Along with his success in the MLS, Barrett has made appearances with both the U.S. Youth National Teams throughout his career as well as earning International caps with the U.S. Men’s National Team.

Steve Jolley, who retired from professional soccer following the 2006 season, is the longest tenured Tribe player in MLS. He spent 10 seasons in the league with the Los Angeles Galaxy, the New York-New Jersey Metrostars, the Dallas Burn, FC Dallas and Red Bull New York. He played in 227 career games with 206 starts in MLS and had 12 goals and 11 assists. His 120 games with New York ranks as the third most by a single player in the franchise’s history.

Adin Brown enjoyed a five-year career in the MLS with the Colorado Rapids, Tampa Bay Mutiny and New England Revolution, before moving abroad and playing in Norway with Aalesunds FK for the last three seasons. He has been named the club’s player of the year in 2006 and 2007 and was a finalist for the Norwegian Second Division Player of the Year in 2006. He signed a contract extension with the club before the 2007 season that extends through 2009.

Another former Tribe player currently tooling his trade in professional soccer is Carlos Garcia. He recently wrapped up his eighth season with the Baltimore Blast. In his eight seasons, the Blast have taken home the MISL Championship three times (2003-04, 2005-06, and 2007-08). In 2006, Garcia recorded his 100th career game played as well as his 100th career point in MISL play. In the MISL Championship Game, Garcia helped propel the Blast to the title with a pair of goals. In 2006-07, Garcia was third on the Blast in scoring with 42 points on 13 two-point goals, one three-point goal and 13 assists.

Ralph Bean, who has made appearances with the Bermuda National Team in 2007 and 2008, spent the last two seasons with the Bermuda Hogges of the United Soccer League Second Division. In February, Bean started and assisted on the Bermuda National Team’s lone goal in a 3-1 loss to the New England Revolution of MLS. He also came off the bench in Bermuda’s historic upset of Trinidad and Tobago during the second round of CONCACAF World Cup qualifying.
