The New England Revolution have returned to Arizona and with them are three new faces in goalkeeper Tomas Gomez, midfielder Zachary Herivaux, and forward Justin Rennicks.
After being a four-year starter at Georgetown University, Gomez was selected by Columbus Crew SC in the third round of the 2015 SuperDraft. On Sunday, Gomez was released by the Crew, allowing him to trial with the Revolution. Gomez will be competing for a contract with former Chivas USA netminder Trevor Spangenberg, who has been in camp since the Casa Grande, AZ trip.
The other two newcomers are academy players. Herivaux, 18, traveled with the Revolution to Tucson last year. Since then, he was named the Revs’ 2014 UnitedHealthcare Youth Player of the Year, earned minutes with the Haiti Under-20s, and committed to playing collegiate soccer at Providence College.
At 15 years old, Rennicks is a younger prospect but he did make his debut for the United States under-16 National Team last month. While with the U-16s, Rennick scored a goal against Romania in the Aegean Cup International Youth Tournament.
Other unsigned camp participants include the aforementioned Spangenberg, defender London Woodberry, midfielders Marco Fenelus, and Tyler Rudy, and forward Timi Mulgrew.
