NEW HAVEN, Conn. - Brian Roberts was selected by the Minnesota Thunder in the first round of the 2004 A-League College Draft on Dec. 17. Roberts, the 2003 Yale captain, was taken with the 14th pick of the first round by the Thunder.
"I am thrilled that Brian's hard work and contributions to Yale soccer have been recognized with his selection in the A League draft," said Yale head coach Brian Tompkins. "He has the potential to be an excellent professional player, and with Minnesota's reputation for developing young players, it could be a great opportunity for him. We wish him the very best."
Roberts started every game of his Yale career and was a four-time All-Ivy selection. This fall he also earned first team All-New England honors.
