After an accolade-accumulating career at St. Lawrence University that found him on the list of eligible players for the 2014 MLS SuperDraft, Andrew Bednarsky will continue his soccer career with FC Buffalo this summer.

Bednarsky’s promising first season for FC Buffalo ended with a late-season injury, but that in no way slowed his senior year at St. Lawrence.

He captained the Saints to a the Sweet Sixteen of the NCAA Division III Tournament, finishing off a career that saw him become the only St. Lawrence player in program history to play every game of his college career. After 9 goals and 8 assists last year, “Bedno” was a NSCAA First Team All-American.

“Andrew was a great asset for us last year and followed it up with an incredibly impressive season for head coach Bob Durocher at my alma mater, the great St. Lawrence University,” Murphy said. “We are thrilled to have him back in the fold and very excited that he wanted to come back. Andrew can be a force just about anywhere, at any time.”

One of only a handful of Division III players — and just 267 players overall — proclaimed eligible for MLS SuperDraft. A three-time regional All-American, Bednardsky was Liberty League Offensive Player of the Year and team MVP. He finished his college career with 15 goals and 20 assists.

Bednarsky will join the Wolves in mid-May upon his college graduation. FC Buffalo opens its season Friday, May 16 in Erie before our home opener on Sunday, May 18 against AFC Cleveland.
