USL-1 Top 25 of the decade
April 8th, 2010 11:47PM

TAGS:  usl, ussf division 2


[MAKING A LIST] It's not only a new decade but a new league for Division II pro soccer in North America. A dispute between USL First Division and some of its owners led to the creation of the USSF Division-2 Pro League in 2010. In the meantime, here's a look back at the top USL-1 players of the last decade ... selected former Montreal Impact defender Gabriel Gervais as the No. 1 player of the decade.

Gervais, wgo retired after the 2008 season,  is one of only six players in league history to earn All-League honors six times, and stands alone as the only three-time Defender of the Year.

All this after a humble beginning for Gervais in 2000 when he played just one game for the Rochester Rhinos, who would capture the league championship that season.

It was his move to Montreal in 2002, however, that led to his breakthrough as a USL-1 star.
