UPDATED: For fans looking to send Preston Burpo well wishes …

UPDATED WITH A MESSAGE FROM PRESTON

By now hopefully everyone has heard the news that goalkeeper Preston Burpo underwent successful reduction surgery on Sunday at Massachusetts General Hospital after suffering a distal tibia/fibula fracture on Saturday night. We’ve been told that Preston is in good spirits, and we’re sure that a big reason for that is all of the well wishes he’s been receiving from coaches, teammates and fans.

With that in mind, we wanted to provide an easy way for fans to send messages to Preston wishing him well in his recovery, so we’ve set up a public e-mail address for him specifically for this purpose: prestonburpo24@gmail.com.

Preston will be checking that e-mail address, so if you’d like to send messages of support, that’s the place to do it.

UPDATE: Preston forward this message along to everyone …  “I’d like to thank my family, friends and members of the soccer community for all the messages wishing me well.  All of the support has been overwhelming.  I look forward to making contact and thanking everyone as I progress through my rehab.”

    Thanks for doing this. I hope Preston realizes the respect and affection the fans have for him. I hope I never see an injury like that again: talk about sacrificing your body for your team…and he’d probably do it again!

    Preston,

    I am a big fan of yours and I wish you a full recovery

  14. Hernandez Family says:

    We all watched your last game and were horrified by your serious injury. We’re all wishing you a complete and smooth recovery.
    We also couldn’t help but notice that as we showed it to visiting friends on DVR (yes, we record all the revolution games), you were the only figure that was too blurry to see clearly – even on slow motion. Obviously this is because you were the one most committed to that last 50/50 ball. You were absolutely flying to get there first – you did. We have appreciated all of your skills and efforts for our beloved Revolution soccer team. Please come back healthy and recovered as soon as possible!
    PEACE
    Robin, Charles, Charlie and Andrew Hernandez

  22. backseat says:

    Some saves define a player while other saves set the bar for every player that ever thinks of playing the position. Sorry the resolution isn’t better but I’ll never foget you hurling yor body on this one – the Albatross is coming at ya and there’s nothing you can do!!!! Can’t wait to see you at it again!!!www.flickr.com/photos/43138245@N07/4669157103/sizes/l/

    Preston is not only a great goalkeeper, but also a very classy guy.

    He always has time for his fans, so it is terrible what has happened.

    Preston you are in all of our thoughts and prayers, and on behalf of all soccer fans we are hoping you get well soon!

  25. Chris says:

    Yes, this is late, but I can’t just not say something; you are one of the most inspirational goalkeepers to have put on a Revolution jersey and my sister and I have the utmost respect for you. For your fans and for your team and for your family and for yourself, we hope you get well soon.

  26. Z says:

    I hate to pry…but I am hoping for good news on the healing front. Any news someone can share on how Preston is doing? I check the web every month and I am not finding updates.

    Anyone?
