Revolution player Chad Barrett surprised the state champion Under-12 Dorchester soccer team Monday at Pope John Park.

Barrett and Papa Gino’s employees surprised the Team Force with a pizza party during their practice. Barrett signed autographs, fielded questions, and organized a shooting drill.

Susan Wadlington, a team parent who nominated Team Force, said in a press release, "I nominated this team because they all come from different backgrounds, attend different schools, but truly come together as a team on the soccer field."

Team Force won the state championship in June.
 
The Revolution and Papa Gino’s will surprise eight New England soccer teams and coaches with a number of prizes, including a personal appearance by a Revolution player, 50 tickets to a Revolution game, and Papa Gino’s pizza.
