A man who had been drafted by the New England Revolution and was a two-time All-American in college has been picked to become the next head coach of the Gordon College men's soccer program.

Ptteiger started every game during his 4-year career at Penn State University and played seven years professionally in the United Soccer League.

A Hamilton soccer player has played a key role in some recent wins for a youth team affiliated with the New England Revolution. Justin Rennicks scored a goal for the Young Revs Under-14 team in a win in Syracuse, N.Y. over Revolution Empire at the end of last month, according to the Revolution’s publicity department. A day later, Rennicks again got the ball in the back of the net in the Young Rev's 3-0 win over Blackwatch Premier Albany in Schenectady, N.Y. Other goals came from Daniel Jones of West Hartford, Conn. and Matthew Uek of Westwood. Both matches wee non-league "freindlies."
