Heinemann signs with the Columbus Crew

Tommy Heinemann, the co-MVP of the 2010 USL2 Champions match is on to the next level; Major League Soccer.

Heinemann signed a contract that will keep him in yellow and black, unfortunately for Charleston Battery fans those are the colors of the Columbus Crew.

during the 2010 USL2 Championship match
2010 was a big year for the big man.  He found his way into the starting line up this season with the Battery, starting 21 games and scoring eight goals and seven assists.  After setting up both goals in the Championship win over the Richmond Kickers,  Heinemann then completed the 2010 season with Carolina Railhawks, making an immediate impact with the team, scoring six goals for the Railhawks in two months.  If you missed it, No Quarter interviewed Tommy in October and you can read it here:  One on One with Tommy Heinemann

Then if that wasn't enough, Tommy got married in November.

It was a busy year to say the least, but his hard work have certainly paid off for him as he starts off 2011 with the Columbus Crew.

"It feels great to be going to MLS,"  said Tommy via email.  "It's every players dream to play at the highest level they can and this is the next challenge for me."

"Its a blessing from God and I thank him for it"  Tommy continued.

"I really cannot say enough thanks for all your support at No Quarter and that of the Battery and their fans," he concluded.  "At least I'm keeping the colors the same!"

We are sure Heinemann will do well for the Crew and No Quarter wishes him the best of luck.
