Revs sign midfielder Jason Griffiths
Griffiths, 23, appeared in 65 games with 64 starts in his Kentucky career, earning all-region honors as a senior. Griffiths finished his career with 12 goals and 10 assists, netting two game-winning goals. Griffiths was also a perfect 8-for-8 in penalty-kick goals in the regular season in his decorated four-year career. During the 2009 season, Griffiths ranked second on the team with three goals, adding one assist.
“We’re pleased to bring Jason into the squad,” Revolution Vice President of Player Personnel Michael Burns said. “He’s a hard-working central midfielder who we believe can grow in our system.”
After a two-week break from league play, the Revolution returns to MLS action on Sunday, June 27, when the club hosts the archrival Chicago Fire at 7 p.m. at Gillette Stadium. For ticket information, call 1-877-GET-REVS or visit revolutionsoccer.net.
