Adam McCabe Signs for His Third Season!

Welcome back to the Revs Adam!

Q1: You’ve been with us now for a couple years including being named Revs Defender of the year in 2016. What made you decide to re-sign with the Revs for the 2018 NPSL season?

Adam: I decided to come back this year because I wanted to continue to play at this level. I really sympathize with the Revs’ mission, their vision for growing the club, and what they stand for. I enjoyed the season last year even though it wasn’t our best. I still think I have a lot to give, and I think the Revolution is the perfect place for me to pursue soccer and to continue to play at a high level.

Q2: For our new fans, could you give us a brief history of where you used to play professionally before joining the Revs?

Adam: So when I was 19 I went to England and joined the RIASA Academy. With this academy I was playing in and out of Bradford City’s Reserve and U-23 program. From there I moved to Thailand. I played over there for 6 months for a team in Bangkok and then moved to Slovakia for another half a year to play with a team in a very small city outside of Bratislava before moving back to Atlanta in 2015. I then joined the Revs for my first season in 2016.

Q3: As one of the first former professional soccer players to come out as openly gay, how has that impacted your life?

Adam: So part of the reason I came home when I was overseas playing professionally was because I needed to work on myself. I felt like I was in this space where I didn’t really know who I was. I was not really happy with my life because I wasn’t really being honest and open with myself and my teammates. So once I came back to Atlanta I kind of took a break from soccer and just focused on myself and my mental health. After I came out to my family and friends, I regained this passion and love for soccer. Everyone’s journey of coming out is different. It’s a very freeing and spiritual journey. I’m definitely a much different person now than I was if you had met me overseas. I was much more reserved, closed off, and secretive. It’s made me be able to flourish and really appreciate and love the game again. I had quit playing because I hated the game, but it’s because I hated myself. Now that I’ve accepted myself and this platform that I have, I’m really thriving in it and I’m really enjoying it. For me, it’s just knowing that there’s a lot of other kids out there like me. They don’t see somebody like me on television, so they don’t think they could be a soccer player at whatever level, whether it be NPSL, MLS, or the EPL. They’re always thinking they can’t do it because there’s nobody out there like them. I can help bring visibility to this community and to this sport, and that’s always going to be a win and accomplishment for me.

Q4: There’s been many changes this off-season for the Revs. How excited are you to be working with the new coaching staff, and what are your expectations for the coming season?

Adam: So what I’ve seen so far from Coach Steo is that he’s very motivated and brings a lot of energy. As a player, that’s exactly what you want from your manager or coach, someone who is going to motivate you and make you want to do better and play better. For me, Steo is a great addition. All of the tangibles and intangibles he’ll bring to the team, with his experience in the NPSL, his coaching staff, and even just his knowledge of the game, will be great for us. It’s always good to get a new perspective, have a different coach come in, and I think with Steo, he’s always coaching at or near this level constantly. I think he knows how to win and knows what it takes to win in the NPSL. That’s a culture that we need. For the upcoming season I’m definitely excited, and I don’t think there’s any reason we shouldn’t make the playoffs. I think last year there was a result here, result there, and I think that very small results could have changed the season as a whole. I think that if we can just stay motivated and have a renewed energy for this year that this season will be much more positive. I think Steo as the manager will definitely be the leading charge in that.

Q5: What’s your favorite part about being a Rev?

I love being able to play this game, and I want to be able to play as long as I can. Georgia Revolution gives me that opportunity, and I’m going to continue to play until I’m not good enough or I’m too old. I think. for me, I just love the community around this team. I love the vision, the ownership, it’s really great people that I’m working with and playing for, and even the community we’ve built around this team. It makes me really want to do good and play for this club. I think what Eric and Alec and everyone else in the organization is doing is fantastic. I think this is the development of soccer in America, and if we want to get better, it’s clubs like Georgia Revolution that are leading the way in trying to improve soccer. I just want to be a part of that experience and play for as long as I can at the highest level possible.
