It came at the start of his sophomore year at Penn State (he signed a Generation adidas contract with MLS after his junior season) in a game against Gonzaga in the Wolstein Classic, a tournament hosted by Ohio State.

Hertzog led the NCAA in scoring this past year with 20 goals and six assists. He produced 33 goals and 14 assists in 61 games over three seasons for the Nittany Lions.

New York selected him with the 13th pick of last week’s MLS SuperDraft, with Red Bulls coach Hans Backe saying the team liked Hertzog’s ability to play out wide on the right as well as up top, and of course, his nose for goal.
