ITHACA, N.Y. – Former Cornell men's
soccer standout Patrick Slogic has been invited to
participate in the 2014 adidas MLS Player Combine that will begin
on Jan. 10 in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
The Ivy League Defensive Player of the Year is one of 63 top collegiate players invited to participate in the five-day event that includes games and player interviews with the MLS clubs. The Combine takes place at the Central Broward Regional Park in Lauderhill, Fla. Matches are open to the public and are $10 per day with matches held on Friday, Sunday and Tuesday.
Slogic again anchored the Big Red's back line in 2013, helping the team post a program-record goals against average of 0.60 for the season, while also serving as one of three captains. Slogic earned first-team All-Ivy honors, was named to the MAC Hermann Trophy watch list and was also selected as a candidate for the Senior CLASS Award. Slogic was an NSCAA/Continental Tire Northeast Region first team selection for the second consecutive season and earned NSCAA Scholar All-East and Al-America accolades and was chosen to the Academic All-Ivy League team and the All-ECAC second team.
Slogic, a six-foot-six defender from Colorado Springs, Colo., finished his illustrious career with the Big Red as the program's leader in minutes played with 5,894, including 5,123 consecutive minutes played dating back to October 2010. He tallied eight goals and six assists for 22 points with four career game-winning goals during his tenure on East Hill.
