D.C. United waived 22-year-old forward Blake Brettschneider on Friday after just one season with the club.

Brettschneider was picked 21st overall in the 2011 Supplemental Draft by D.C., and played in 15 Major League Soccer matches last season.

"We'd like to thank Blake for his contributions to our club," said D.C. United general manager Dave Kasper. "He was very well-liked and a good professional and we wish him the best in the future."

Prior to joining United, Brettschneider played collegiately at South Carolina, scoring 19 goals and contributing 17 assists.
