FOXBOROUGH, Mass. –The New England Revolution announced today that the club has signed two of its picks from the 2010 MLS SuperDraft: defender Seth Sinovic from Creighton University and forward/midfielder Zak Boggs from the University of South Florida. Both players will occupy developmental roster spots. Per team and league policies, terms of the deals were not released.
The Revolution selected both players in the second round of the 2010 MLS SuperDraft, with Sinovic picked with the 25th overall selection and Boggs taken with the 31st overall selection.
“Seth and Zak are both promising players and we’re pleased to add them to the roster,” Revolution Vice President of Player Personnel Michael Burns said. “Both players have showed some good things during preseason training, and now that they are on the roster, provide us with more depth in several positions. We’re looking forward to developing them in our system.”
