Janos Loebe and Rashid Nuhu, who play midfield/forward and goalie, respectively, for Fordham’s men’s soccer team, were picked last week by New York Red Bulls in the 2019 Major League Soccer SuperDraft.
Loebe, a senior from Germany majoring in business administration at the Gabelli School of Business, was the 22nd selection of the first round of the draft. Nuhu, a senior from Ghana who is majoring in economics at Fordham College at Rose Hill, was selected 22nd in the third round (70th selection overall).
This is the first time that Fordham has had two MLS SuperDraft selections in the same year. Nuhu and Loebe are also the third and fourth Rams to join the Red Bulls, following Ryan Meara, who was a second-round selection in 2012, and John Wolyniec, who was a first-round selection (seventh overall) by the then-NY/NJ MetroStars in 1999.
