CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. Virginia standout Jeremy Barlow was selected by the Houston Dynamo in the fourth round of the MLS SuperDraft and teammates Yannick Reyering (FC Dallas), Chris Tierney (New England Revolution) and Zola Short (Columbus Crew) were selected in the supplemental draft.
Barlow, a senior out of Herndon, Va., was named to the All-ACC second team in 2007. His two assists in the first round of the NCAA Tournament helped the Cavaliers advance to the second round and finish with an overall record of 12-8-2 (1-5-2 ACC). Barlow contributed eight points to the Cavalier offense this year and finished with 12 goals and 18 assists (42 points) for his career.
A repeat All-ACC selection, he was also named to the all-freshman team in 2004. Barlow was chosen 56th overall in the SuperDraft.
Reyering, meanwhile, was a first team All-ACC selection in 2007 after a prolific offensive year in which he amassed 13 goals and four game-winning goals. A three-time All-ACC honoree, Reyering netted 39 goals and 10 assists during his decorated career before suffering a season-ending knee injury prior to the 2007 ACC Tournament.
Tierney finished his illustrious career ranking second on the team in 2007 with seven goals and seven assists for 21 points. During the regular season, he was named to College Soccer News’ Team of the Week on Sept. 4 after netting three goals in the first two games of the season. At the conclusion of the season, he was named to the VaSID all-state second team.
Short, who anchored the Cavalier backfield for four years, appeared in 65 games (starting 58) for UVa during his career. One of the strongest defenders in the league, Short registered one assist during his career.
After playing at Virginia, 39 former Cavaliers have gone on to play Major League Soccer. Last season there were 11 former Virginia players in MLS, representing seven of the 13 clubs.
