If this year's U.S. Soccer Development Academy (USSDA) awards are any indication, the future is bright for the New England Revolution.
The Revs captured five USSDA awards, according to a release from Tuesday. Highlights include Bryan Scales being named as the Eastern Conference's under-15/16 Coach of the Year and current first-team player Zachary Herivaux earning a spot on the Eastern Conference's U-17/18 starting XI.
Three of the Revolution's five awards came at the U-15/16 level. Goalkeeper Troy Miller and defender Daniel Jones were included in the Eastern Conference's U-15/16 starting XI while Scales was listed as Coach of the Year.
Scales' U-16 team went 12-5-9 in the regular season, entering the playoffs as the 18th seed. The team would advance as far as the USSDA Quarterfinals before being ousted by the higher-ranked Philadelphia Union.
Going up an age group, Herivaux was the sole Revs representative on the Eastern Conference's U-17/18 starting XI. Herivaux spent time as both a defender and midfielder for the U-18s, also serving as captain. He signed as a Homegrown in May, forgoing the opportunity to play at Providence College.
The final youth award bestowed upon the Revs was from U-13/14 level as squad was recognized as having the best style of play in the East. The Revolution U-14s are led by head coach Gary Hall and only had one loss in 28 games this year.
