Revs Taylor Twellman Expected To Retire After Multiple Concussions
Revolution's Twellman set to end his career
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) – New England Revolution forward Taylor
Twellman is expected to announce that concussion issues are forcing
him to end his career.
The 30-year-old Twellman has scheduled a press conference
Wednesday at Gillette Stadium with head coach Steve Nicol to
announce that he will abandon his quest at a comeback.
The Minneapolis-born striker has suffered a number of
concussions and has been sidelined for more than a year.
When he last played in June 2009, Twellman scored two goals
against the New York Red Bulls to reach 101 in his eight-year
career. He was the fifth player in MLS history to score 100 goals.
Twellman was drafted by the Revolution in the first round of the
2002 MLS SuperDraft and is a five-time MLS All-Star.
