Revolution Head Coach and former defender Jay Heaps will be inducted into the Duke Athletics Hall of Fame on Friday, October 11 of this year.
Heaps, a native of Longmeadow, Mass., earned National Player of the Year honors from the Missouri Athletic Club in 1998 as a member of Duke’s soccer team. A two-time All-America, four-time All-ACC and four-time All-ACC Tournament selection, he helped the Blue Devils to a four-year record of 61-23-1 by totaling 127 career points on 45 goals and 37 assists. Also a four-year member of Duke’s basketball team, Heaps was named second team Academic All-America and was honored as the Scholar Athlete of the Year by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America in 1998. He went on to an 11-year playing career in Major League Soccer, garnering the Rookie of the Year citation in 1999 and at the time of his retirement, ranked among the league’s all-time leaders in matches played (3rd; 314), minutes played (3rd; 27,363) and matches started (4th; 299). On November 15, 2011, Heaps was named the head coach of the New England Revolution.

New England Revolution legend Luis “El Lobo” Fangoso issued this statement in reaction to the news that Gibraltar has been accepted as a full member of UEFA, European soccer's governing body:
“It is with great pride and satisfaction that I congratulate the Gibraltar Football Association on gaining the official status it has long deserved. Though our old rivalries with the likes of Greenland and Shetland provide some of my happiest sporting memories, we are now in the company that we have long deserved to keep. I am glad that this happened while I am still in my prime and have the hunger. I look forward to receiving a call from the GFA for the next national team training camp.”
A star for club and country, Fangoso, 38, is famous for his flowing locks, his ability to play any outfield position and to adapt to all terrain and field conditions. Since his retirement, El Lobo has run his famed football academy – known as the School of Rock – which has been a consistent, if indirect, funnel for soccer talent from South America to the Iberian peninsula. Fangoso also maintains an off-shore tax law consultancy practice.

Watch the goal below:
The Revolution held its second-annual media game on Wednesday, May 22 on the Gillette Stadium field. Members of the local media participated in several small-sided matches against each other, with Revolution players serving as coaches, and Revolution coaches serving as referees. As you can imagine, head coach, er, referee Jay Heaps was pretty heavy-handed with the cards. Rumor has it Jeff Lemieux was red carded for missing an open net!
All in all it was a great time for everyone. Here are some photos from the event, with video to follow soon.
