Former Rutgers star MD Myers made the most of his first season with New York City FC II

During the 2022 campaign, MD Myers dazzled Rutgers soccer fans with his scoring ability. As a result, he was drafted in the 2023 MLS SuperDraft by New York FC City.

And in his first full season, Myers showed his potential by being named to the ‘Best XI’ in the MLS Next Pro. The league is the developmental arm of MLS.

The New Jersey native was a scoring machine for NYCFC II as he recorded 19 goals. Myers certainly was not afraid of shooting the ball as he attempted 90 shots, 45 of which landed on the net.


Additionally, he posted a 69.9 passing percentage in 2,454 minutes of action. His statistics were similar to those that he posted at Rutgers before he moved on to the next step of his career.


For Rutgers fans, his success comes as no surprise. Myers called Piscataway home for one year and recorded 32 points. In 18 games, he found the back of the net 13 times. Due to his play, he was unanimously selected as the 2022  Big Ten Player of the Year.

While his professional career is starting, Myers has made a great first impression. He has already added a Golden Boot award to his resume, which should be just the beginning of an unforgettable career as he looks to transition to the first team next year.
