Occidental quarterback Justin Goltz and Greensboro defensive lineman Brandon Drumgoole were selected in the 2010 UFL draft. Goltz, who was in a Detroit Lions minicamp shortly after graduation last season, was taken by Sacramento in the first round, No. 3 overall, while Drumgoole was selected in the ninth round, 44th overall.

The draft for the five-team league lasted 12 rounds.

Drumgoole, a senior this past season, had a team-high 16 tackles for loss and six sacks.

"This is a great honor for Brandon and we're proud of him," said Greensboro coach Randy Hunt. "The UFL is perhaps the world's second-best football league behind the NFL. Brandon has a pro body and we look forward to following his career."

Goltz completed 66 percent of his passes for 1,832 yards in nine games for Occidental as a senior in 2008, adding 599 yards and eight yards rushing. He threw 11 touchdowns and just three interceptions.
