Brian Patrick Shriver (born August 5, 1987 in Clearwater, Florida) is a former American soccer player.


Youth and college[edit]

Shriver was an All-state performer at Clearwater High School, where he served as team captain for three years and earned all-county honors in 2003–04. He was named to the NSCAA/adidas Youth All-America in 2004 and participated in the 2004 adidas Elite Soccer Program.

He played college soccer at the University of North Carolina, and in the USL Premier Development League for Carolina Dynamo,[1] Colorado Rapids U-23[2] and Cary RailHawks U23s, the latter of whom he scored 6 goals in 13 appearances.


Shriver was drafted in the 2009 MLS SuperDraft by FC Dallas in the second round, 27th overall. However, an injury prevented him from joining the team and he stayed at UNC to finish school and rehab. He finally joined Dallas FC at the end of the summer in 2009, but after just a month and a half of training he was not offered a contract and released by the team.

He signed with USL First Division club Miami FC in August 2009 and signed a new contract with the club, now called Fort Lauderdale Strikers and playing in the North American Soccer League, on February 8, 2011.[3]

Shriver was traded to Carolina RailHawks on February 17, 2012 in exchange for cash and future considerations.[4]
