From hearing his name called on the night of the MLS draft to meeting and playing against his idol, it has been quite a rookie season for the Revs' Andrew Farrell.

He sat down with's Jessica Camerato to discuss it on this editon of "Beyond the Pitch."

Farrell said it was a thrill to be able to celebrate being drafted with his parents and grandparents. And on the field, "there are things in the college game that I definitely can't get away with now."

He said his Revs teammates have helped him make the adjustment to the pros. "All the veterans have helped me a lot," Farrell said.

And his "I made it moment" as a professional?

"Meeting and shaking hands with Thierry Henry of the New York Red Bulls," Farrell said. "It was exciting playing against my idol."

Off the pitch, Farrell plays the piano and is learning to play the guitar.

"That's the way to a woman's heart," he says.
