"I want to give Charlie a ton of credit," said Revolution head coach Jay Heaps. "Charlie, first and foremost, has been pushing and has had a couple injuries to fight through.

Bishop Hendricken guard Justin Mazzulla accomplished that unlikely feat last week when Boston College offered him a scholarship on Friday night.

Easy to forget, but Coach Christian is out on the recruiting trail continuing to make moves.
