William James Hervé is ending his career and leaving the United States at the end of the fall semester, the Maryland men’s soccer junior midfielder announced on Instagram Sunday.

“I would have never thought this day would have come that fast. It breaks my heart but it is also a relief for me to announce this,” Hervé wrote in his post. “My body and mind have been heavily impacted by injuries. I came to realization that I didn’t want to see my life being unhealthy and sad so it was necessary for me to take this important decision.

“I have made great friends and met great people. I am very thankful for all of the love and support I have received here and I will forever remember all the great memories that we have made. Life goes on and the past can’t be changed. I’ll leave with a natty champs ring and life lasting friends. Mission accomplished!”

Hervé scored three goals and tallied three assists back in Maryland’s NCAA championship-winning 2018 campaign. In the Sweet 16, the freshman delivered the game-winning goal in Maryland’s win at Duke. He started in the College Cup Final against Akron and was named to the Big Ten All-Freshman team.

The Paris, France, native saw his sophomore action limited due to leg injuries, only taking the field in three games throughout the 2019 season.
