Episode No. 2 of the New England Soccer Journal Podcast has dropped.
Our lead segment is with Amos Shapiro-Thompson (Worthington, Mass.), a rising sophomore midfielder at Boston College. He has quite the story to tell, with local roots at Milton Academy and the New England Revolution before heading overseas, initially in Spain.
His path took several more twists and turns, including lengthy stints at Dinamo Zagreb (Croatia) and Legia Warsaw (Poland), where Shapiro-Thompson neared a professional contract. But an impasse arrived and now-BC head coach Bob Thompson came calling with an offer he couldn’t quite refuse.
If that all sounds familiar, it’s because Shapiro-Thompson previously got the cover-story treatment for the September 2019 edition of New England Soccer Journal the magazine.
