Hey New England Revolution fans, get ready for a real treat.
Ryan Guy, winger for the Revs will be at Holy Cross Monday October 7 at 7:30 in the Rehm Library.
For those who don’t know, the New England Revolution is a professional soccer team, one of the original 10 MLS teams here in the US, based in Boston. They are owned by Robert Kraft (also owner of the Patriots) and play all their home games in Gillette stadium.
Guy has had an esteemed career, playing all over the world whether it be for his college team at the University of San Diego, or for various teams across Europe. Tired of life on the road and feeling a bit homesick, Guy returned to the States though and signed a deal with the Revolution in 2011 and has been a key player for them ever since.
Guy has agreed to partner with Fellowship of Christian Athletes, a bible study/community service group for athletes here at Holy Cross and will be giving a talk about what it means to combine his faith and his athletic career. With stars like Tim Tebow and Josh Hamilton so open about their faith when it comes to athletics, it has become a big topic in our modern sports world.
Not only that, but Ryan Guy is brining a special guest, a former chaplain for the Red Sox, Patriots, and Celtics, to help him with his talk and answer questions from the crowd.
So if you have some time on Monday stop by the Rehm Library and see a pro-athlete take some time from his busy schedule to answer some questions from the fans and give the Holy Cross community a glimpse of what it looks like to live a faith-based life on the national sports stage.
