Revs youth players recognized
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – Two members of the New England Revolution Under-18 youth team – forward Cole Denormandie (Lincoln, Mass.) and defender Matt Keys (Norfolk, Mass.) – have been named high school all-Americans by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA).
In addition, Denormandie, Keys and six other Revolution youth players also earned NSCAA High School All-Region I (New England) honors: Under-18 players and high school seniors Cameron Bielski (Dover, Mass., Dover-Sherborn High School), Daniel Chmura (Wilbraham, Mass., Minnechaug Regional High School), Fabio Machado, Jr. (Leominster, Mass., Leominster High School), Adrian Reifsnyder (Newton, Mass., The Roxbury Latin School), Jose Silva (Northborough, Mass., Algonquin Regional High School) and Under-16 player and high school junior Mitchell Taintor (Storrs, Conn., Edwin O. Smith High School).
DeNormandie, a Lincoln-Sudbury Regional High School senior, earned his second consecutive selection to the All-American team, and is one of only three boys named to the 77-player team who were also 2009 All-Americans. Lincoln-Sudbury finished its season 13-2-1.
Keys, a King Philip Regional High senior, earned his first selection to the All-American team. King Philip finished its season 10-3-4.
DeNormandie and Keys will be honored for their achievements at the annual All-American Luncheon, to be held at the Hilton Baltimore Hotel on Saturday, Jan. 15, as part of the 2011 NSCAA Convention in Baltimore, Md.
Outside of regular training, both the U18s and U16s have a break from competition until early March when the Revs continue their third season in the U.S. Soccer Development Academy. Kicking off a series of home matches, the Revolution youth teams will play NJSA 04 at Gillette Stadium on Saturday, March 5.
