Red Bulls, Wilmington Hammerheads Agree to Extend Corey Hertzog Loan for Remainder of USL-Pro Season

HARRISON, NJ (June 27, 2012) – The New York Red Bulls announced today that the current loan of forward Corey Hertzog to USL-PRO side Wilmington Hammerheads has been extended for the remainder of the USL-PRO season. The teams had initially agreed to a one month loan for the former Penn State University forward on May 29.

“Corey and the club discussed the possibility of extending his loan to the end of the year and we both agreed that it was in his best interest to stay with Wilmington to play more competitive matches,” said Red Bulls General Manager and Sporting Director Erik Soler. “We wish him luck in Wilmington and we look forward to having him back once their season is over.”

While on loan with the Hammerheads, Hertzog has played in seven matches and registered four goals and two assists. Wilmington is currently in fourth place in USL-PRO with a 5-4-4 record.

Originally drafted by New York in the first round (13th overall) of the 2011 MLS SuperDraft out of Penn State University, Hertzog had not made a first team appearance for the Red Bulls in 2012. Last season, Hertzog featured in five regular season games. Hertzog scored one goal in three MLS Reserve League appearances this year.
