Edson Three Times Buddle is one of ours. He grew up in New Rochelle, and is named after Edson Arantes do Nascimento, better known as Pele. Buddle played one year of college at State Fair Community College, where he led State Fair to the 1999 NJCAA Division I National Championship. Buddle began his professional career in 2000, when he signed with the Long Island Rough Riders. Buddle helped the team win the Northeast Division, scoring 11 goals and 4 assists, and was a finalist for the A-League Rookie of the Year Award. Maybe he will find his way back to New York and play for NYFC in 2010.
