NORTON, Mass. – Wheaton College sophomore midfielder Luke Finkelstein (Peabody, Mass./Peabody) has committed to play for the Real Boston Rams of the United Soccer Leagues Premier Development League (PDL) this spring.
Finkelstein joins the Rams after a standout second-year campaign with the Lyons. Finkelstein earned National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) Division III All-New England South second team honors and New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) All-Conference second team accolades. The sophomore midfielder notched 12 points in 19 games played (all starts) and finished second overall among all midfielders in the NEWMAC with eight assists.
"The professionalism from the club has been great. I'm very motivated and ready for the season to start," said Finkelstein of joining Real Boston. "I just want to help the club go as far as we can. I'm looking to improve as a player and help promote the club in any way I can."
As a freshman, Finkelstein was tabbed as the NEWMAC Rookie of the Year and also garnered All-Conference second team accolades. Finkelstein has started in all 38 games he has appeared in over two seasons compiling three goals and 15 assists for 21 points. Finkelstein is currently three assists shy of cracking Wheaton's top-10 list for helpers in a career.
"Finkelstein is a quality player," said Real Boston head coach Jim Costa. "He has a great attitude, hard work ethic, and is good on and off the ball."
