Where Are They Now? 2014

The first edition of what will be an annual look at the whereabouts and exploits of notable Detroit City alums.

Adam Bedell

In his rookie season with the Columbus Crew, he made 16 regular season appearances and 1 in the playoffs, scoring 2 goals in the process.

On his debut, he also became the tallest player (6’7″) in MLS history.

Keith Lough

Joined Gala Fairydean Rovers of the Scottish Lowland Football League this summer.

Rovers currently sit in 9th place (out of 14) in the 5th Division league and by digging through their Twitter timeline, it looks like Lough has scored 3 goals so far this season.

Others

Kofi Opare made 6 appearances with the L.A. Galaxy before being traded to D.C. United midseason. Joey Dillon made 25 appearances for Arizona United of USL Pro (I believe he was on loan from Real Salt Lake, but couldn’t find any confirmation). Fabio Pereira earned a place on the Seattle Sounders’ roster coming out of the preseason, but was released in July. Knox Cameron can now be heard on Sports Radio Detroit, and word on the street is that he may return to play for DCFC in 2015 after a one-year absence.

Coaches

Kylie Stannard was named Michigan State Associate Head Coach prior to the 2014 season. The Spartans finished with a ranking of 12th in the nation, and will make their third straight appearance in the upcoming NCAA Tournament. Cale Wassermann has led Saginaw Valley State back to the D-II Tournament, their first appearance since falling in the championship game in 2012. Along the way, SVSU has become a DCFC pipeline, providing the team with such talent as Zach Myers, Michael Lamb, Locky Savage, and Alex Isaevski, among others.
