NE Revs sign 19 year-old Zachary Herivaux to pro contract

The New England Revolution have signed midfielder Zachary Herivaux to their team this week. The 19 year-old Brookline resident has Haitian roots and played on the Haiti national U-20 team in the 2015 CONCACAF Championship. He appeared in all five of Haiti’s games at the competition, starting games against El Salvador, Cuba and Honduras.

Herivaux was due to begin studies and play at Providence College, but "will now forego his NCAA eligibility and join the Revolution on a professional contract," according to the Revolution.

“I couldn’t be happier to be signing with the Revolution,” Herivaux said. “The Academy helped me grow as a player both on and off the field, and I’m ready to take this next step in my career. I’m excited represent my hometown club, and to have the opportunity to play in front of my family and friends. I can’t wait to start training with the first team.”
