One week after tracking down a former New England Revolution striker, we turn our attention to the back line. Today we look at Jeremy Hall’s career path since leaving New England after the 2015 season.
Career with the Revolution
The Revs traded for Hall in 2014, sending Toronto FC a fourth-round pick in the 2015 MLS SuperDraft. The versatile veteran logged 998 minutes over 12 appearances. Although largely considered a reserve, Hall looked sharp at right back, battling the likes of David Villa and David Acaam to great success.
Hall seemed to like his time in New England, even telling TBM’s Jonathan Sigal, “I would love to stay in New England and be one of those guys who finishes their careers here.“
Hall wouldn’t get his wish, however, as he’d be on the move at season’s end.
Where is he now?
Hall resurfaced with the Tampa Bay Rowdies of NASL, signing a one-year contract. The return home didn’t exactly work out, as Hall failed to make a single appearance before being sent on loan to Sacramento Republic of the USL.
The change of coasts was good for Hall, who played 12 games with his new club. Playing primarily as a defensive midfielder, reviews of Hall were positive.
“Jeremy has been a big player for us,” Republic FC coach Paul Buckle told The Sacramento Bee. “He has brought his MLS experience to the club and with it has given us real stability. He is someone who has given us a platform to go and play and move the ball the way we want to move it.”
Hall signed with Sacramento after his loan expired.
Do the Revs miss him?
I mean, the Revs only have five defenders on their roster and Hall was solid enough at right back. In fact, I was a bit surprised he wasn’t used more regularly while he was with the Revs.
Is Hall a world beater? No. Is he the missing piece? No. Am I advocating that the Revs go out and sign him? No. That said, I wouldn’t mind it if Hall was still with the club.
