O'Hagan Drafted By UFL's San Francisco Club

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. - Former Harvard quarterback Liam O'Hagan '09 has been drafted by San Francisco in the inaugural UFL Draft.

Selections were made from players who participated in the League's recent workouts in Orlando and Las Vegas along with other available prospects.  Each franchise selected 24 players and now owns the rights to those players if they choose to play in the United Football League.  The UFL has already begun contacting the players listed below and expects to announce signings over the next few weeks.  This list may be subject to change based on further player evaluations or additional player availability.

O'Hagan is one of three QBs drafted by head coach Dennis Green's team: He is joined by Kentucky's Shane Boyd and Hanover College's Brett Dietz. 

O'Hagan earned All-Ivy league honors in 2005 after starting nine games in his sophomore season. He collected 2,448 yards of offense to rank second on Harvard's single season list. O'Hagan battled injuries throughout his junior and would-be senior season, starting eight games but missing 12. He returned to Cambridge this fall for a rare fifth year of eligibility as he and Chris Pizzotti (New York Jets) gave Harvard two all-league quarterbacks. O'Hagan earned the team's Henry H. Lamar Award for dedication to the program following the season.

The remaining openings on each UFL team's roster will be partially filled in July with players who coaches had previously identified and "reserved". The last invites for the 60-man opening camp rosters will go to players who have been released by the NFL during training camp; with divisional/regional preferences assigned to each of the inaugural four franchises.
