Noel Buck (Arlington, Mass.) joined the New England Revolution Academy in 2017 at the age of 12.
Still just a 16-year-old, he earned an extremely significant honor last weekend.
The midfielder was named the UnitedHealthcare Revolution Academy Player of the Year for the 2020-21 MLS NEXT season. The current New England Revolution II midfielder and 2021 Revolution Academy graduate becomes the seventh different recipient of the honor.
"It means a lot," said Buck. "It’s a great award to get and I’m really proud of it."
