Twellman to make New England Revolution decision soon

New England Revolution's all-time leading scorer Taylor Twellman says he will soon make a decision on his future.

The 30-year old has been out of action for much of the past two seasons after an on-field collision in 2008 left him with a neck injury and subsequent concussion making life, let alone soccer, hard to deal with.

Twellman is currently on the long-term injury list at the Revs and admits he will have to make a career-defining decision in the not too distant future.

"I will make an educated decision both for myself and the Revolution,'' Twellman said.

"They can't be held hostage by what's going on, and I can't be held hostage just by being torn and feeling guilty and not being able to play. It's been a very difficult situation. We'll talk about it more in the offseason when everyone sits down and we make an educated decision with my doctors and my family.''

As of the complications arising from the injury, Twellman said it was a day-to-day proposition.

"I take it one day at a time,'' he added. "If one day I wake up and I feel 100 percent - which hasn't happened yet - then you know what, then I'll worry about soccer. But really, I'm just worried about my day-to-day living and just trying to enjoy it."
