Former New England Revolution midfielder Tyler Rudy announced his retirement from soccer on Friday.
Rudy, 23, played at Georgetown University, collecting seven goals and 12 assists in four seasons. In 2015, he signed with the Revs and was soon sent on loan to the Rochester Rhinos. Here, he became a regular, making 14 appearances for a Rhinos side that lifted the USL trophy. Rudy was unable to participate in the championship game because of a torn superior retinaculum.
Rudy was invited to the Revolution’s 2016 preseason camp but didn’t end up signing a contract. He ultimately landed with NASL expansion side Puerto Rico FC. In his first season, he scored two goals in 21 appearances.
Rudy returned to the island for a second season but injuries limited him to just two appearances. After careful consideration, Rudy decided to pursue other career opportunities, making it official on Twitter this Friday.
We at The Bent Musket would like to wish Rudy good luck as he begins the next chapter in his life.
