Several local players were selected in Thursday's Major League Soccer SuperDraft, including Charlie Rugg of Boston College, who was picked 19th overall by the Los Angeles Galaxy.

Rugg, a native of Roslindale, attended The Rivers School in Weston before becoming a standout for BC. The forward ranks fifth in program history in goals (28) and points (74).

Rugg's teammate at BC, midfielder Kyle Bekker, went third overall to Toronto FC. Bekker, a native of Ontario, is second all time in assists at BC with 22.

Taken one spot ahead of Bekker was UConn's Carlos Alvarez, by Chivas USA. Alvarez, from Los Angeles, was voted playmaker and Big East midfielder of the year in 2012. He totaled seven goals and nine assists as a senior as the Huskies reached the NCAA quarterfinals.

Forward Don Anding became the first Northeastern player to be picked in the SuperDraft, going 26th overall to the Philadelphia Union. Brown defender Dylan Remick went 35th to Seattle Sounders FC.
