Richmond Kickers Website

VESTAL, N.Y. -- Senior back Adam Chavez (Endicott, N.Y.) has joined the Richmond Kickers of the United Soccer League (USL). Having concluded a standout career for the Bearcats, Chavez will make his USL debut when the kickers open their 2008 slate on April 19 at home against the Western Massachusetts Pioneers.

“Adam has started in all of our pre-season matches so far including a 3-0 win over D.C. United of MLS (Major League Soccer)," Richmond Kickers Vice President Leigh Cowlishaw said. "He has shown good composure on the ball and will no doubt bring a strong physical presence to our back line. Although competition will be fierce we expect Adam to compete immediately for a starting position this season."

Chavez was a two-time All-Northeast Region selection at Binghamton, having been named to the first team in 2007 and second-team in 2006. He was also the 2007 America East Conference Defender of the Year and earned first-team all-conference honors as a junior and senior. In the classroom, Chavez was named a 2007 NSCAA Scholar All-American as well as the America East Fall Academic Squad.

"Adam has been working hard in preparation for his professional début," Binghamton head coach Paul Marco said. "Richmond has a great winning tradition and I'm sure competition will be extremely high but he has shown he can compete with the best of them. We wish him all the best as he begins hopefully his first of many successful years as a pro."

Binghamton won the America East Conference title in Chavez's junior year and was the runner up the other three seasons. The Bearcats also won the America East regular season title the past two seasons.
