The New England Revolution announced they have signed supplemental draft pick Gabe Latigue, midfielder out of Elon University. He was the 61st overall pick, drafted in the fourth round.
During his four seasons at Elon, Latigue scored 15 goals and had 17 assists in 82 games. The 22-year-old from Apex, N.C., also won the 2012 Southern Conference's Most Outstanding Player award.
In a statement, Revolution general manager Michael Burns said the team is looking forward to working with Latigue.
"He has shown he can fit in on either side of the midfield and has talent on set pieces," Burns said.
The Revs leading scorer last season, Saer Sene, is now doing passing drills with the team, getting back on the field after an ACL injury required surgery last September. Sene said his knee is feeling better and he is happy to be back out on the field practicing but he isn't expected to return to full training for some time.
