Bolts in the Pros

Harry Swartz , f ormer Boston Bolts, Northeastern star gets first pro chance

At the 2019 adidas MLS Player Combine in Orlado, Fla., Harry Swartz's (Needham, MA) worst nightmare became reality.   In the final day of scrimmages, his last chance to impress MLS coaches, the Northeastern University star rolled his ankle. Frustrated and worried about what comes next, Swartz returned to Boston and got an MRI. The diagnosis: high ankle sprain.

Swartz ultimately went undrafted and spent the next two months hobbled, staying in shape with bike workouts and training with Chris Gbandi's team at Northeastern. "It was kind of like you get your hopes high and within one minute they're crushed," Swartz, a former youth standout for the Boston Bolts, said. "It could have been a lot worse and was disappointing. But once I found out the injury timeframe, all I wanted was an opportunity to get my start."

That arrived last week, as Swartz signed with USL Championship expansion side Hartford Athletic, New England's newest professional soccer team.  A debut in the club's home opener May 4 - a 1-1 draw with Charlotte Independence before 11,346 people at Rentschler Field in East Hartford, CT - quickly followed. Former Providence College star Mac Steeves (Needham, MA) scored the sole goal, while Swartz went 77 minutes at right back before subbing off for Giuseppe Gentile.

Naturally, head coach  Jimmy Nielsen  said, fans might wonder why the 23-year-old was thrown into the deep end so soon. But internally, Hartford knew exactly what Swartz would offer. He'd spent the last three weeks training with the club, even crashing on Steeves' couch.

Eventually, Swartz forced Nielsen's hand.

"I'll be honest, from day one he impresses us with his attitude," Nielsen, a former MLS Cup champion goalkeeper with SportingKansas City, said. "He is extremely hungry, a little pitbull on the field who's doing everything the right way. We had him playing left back, right back, center back, winger, attacking mid - wherever needed. That's part of being a guest player. No matter where he played him, he impressed the heck of us."

For anyone who followed Swartz's time with the Bolts or at Northeastern, that should come as no surprise. He was a three-year captain for the Huskies, finishing his career with five goals and five assists. He also played several positions and fought through injuries, featuring in 2018 as a redshirt senior.

Now Swartz just wants a chance to prove he belongs. 

Check out the highlights from the first ever home match for Hartford Athletic with Bolts alums Swartz & Steeves!
