Former Brown Soccer Standout, Jeff Larentowicz ‘05, Earns MLS Championship

Providence, RI- Former Brown University men's soccer standout, Jeff Larentowicz '05, helped the Colorado Rapids defeat FC Dallas in overtime, 2-1, in the MLS Cup Championship game on Sunday evening at BMO Field to garner its first title in franchise history.

After being traded from the New England Revolution to the Rapids in January, the midfielder has started in 29 of 30 games and scored four goals and handed out an assist in just his first season with the Rapids.

Larentowicz competed for the Bears from 2001 to 2004, and during his four seasons he played in 66 matches, amassing seven goals and six assists, helping Brown to two Ivy League Championships. Before Brown, he helped lead traditional Philadelphia-area power Chestnut Hill Academy to back-to-back Interacademic League championships in 2000 and 2001. He also captained the FC Delco Arsenal to two USYSA National Championships in 2002 and 2003.
