It’s been a great college season so far for many of our Georgia Revolution FC players, with fourteen members of our 2016 team representing in the college ranks. Here’s an update on how they’re doing.
Ben Gradert: Commonwealth Coast Conference 2015 Co-Defender of the Year and All-CCC First Team Selection, Ben returned to Massachusetts to begin his junior year at New England DIV III powerhouse Gordon College. This skilled outside back has started all eleven games for the 9-1-1 Fighting Scots, contributing one goal.
Adam Abdellaoui and Nick Wells: Two Revs are making an impact for the Georgia Southern Eagles after great rookie season with the Revs. Adam returned to school after scoring five goals last year. He has played in eleven games, starting eight where he’s scored two goals and added three assist. Nick is back at Georgia Southern looking to build on his 2015 season when he was named to the All-Sun Belt Conference Second Team. He’s playing great, starting eight games and played in ten. He’s tallied one goal and one assist.
Devon Patterson: The Oglethorpe University Forward returns to the school for his junior year after his first season in the NPSL. Technically skilled with a quickness that is a headache for opposing defenders, Devon has already tallied 4 goals in his eight starts for the Stormy Petrels.
Aigbekan Nosegbe: He’s back at forward at Furman for his sophomore year after finishing his first season with the Revolution FC where he scored a goal in his first five minutes of NPSL play. He’s played in all eleven games for the Paladins, scoring one goal.
Josh Swift: Revs Goalkeeper Josh is enjoying a record setting junior year at Georgia Southwestern State University. He’s started all ten game, making 67 saves including his performance against Faulkner University where he saved twenty-two shots on goal.
Cameron Saul: The English native and Midfielder spent most of his first NPLS season recovering from a knee injury. It hasn’t slowed him down as a sophomore at Waldorf University in Iowa where he’s played in twelve games, starting eleven and scoring two goal.
Mackens Marcelin: Mikee is back to LaGrange College for his final year after spending 2016 on the Revs Reserve Roster. The Defender has played in all twelve games for the Panthers scoring one goal.
Kyle Sterling: As the youngest Rev on the roster, Kyle showed he has what it takes to succeed in the NPSL and is one of our top prospects. The skilled defender is a true freshman at Clayton State University where he’s played in five games for the Lakers.
Bjorn Kammholz: GA Revolution FC 2016 U20 Player of the Year, Goalkeeper Bjorn is back at Boston University for his junior year. Playing behind the 2015 Patriot League Goalkeeper of the Year Bjorn has seen limited action this season but there is no doubt he will be back at the Revs better than ever next summer.
Jon Guy, Luke Connor, Noah Elam, and Blake Andrews: Four of our talented young players are with the Mountain Lions of Young Harris College. Defender Jon Guy started several games in the NPSL last season. A good mix of size, speed and skill, Jon had a great season with the team. He’s been recovering from an injury which has limited his playing time this college season. Luke Connor spent 2016 training on both the Revs Reserves and the NPSL team. The English Midfielder shows skill on the ball and an eye for goal. In his sophomore year, he is splitting time between JV and Varsity at Young Harris playing in a combined six games with two starts. Noah Elam is an outside back for the Revs and showed great potential in his first appearance in the NPSL at the end of the 2016 campaign, playing all ninety minutes. He’s on the JV squad as a Midfielder in school where he’s scored 6 goal with an assist in only five games. The final Rev at Young Harris is Sophomore Midfielder Blake Andrews. Blake spend last year on the Revs Reserves and is currently playing on the JV team at college. He’s played in five games scoring two goals and adding an assist.
With all this young talent continuing to develop in college, the Revolution’s 2017 NPSL season will be an exciting one. Good luck to all our players and look for an end of season update later this year.
