New, 1 comment

In this series we take a look back at the 2010 Philadelphia Union team to see what everyone is doing now. Today we look at the guys in between the sticks - the goalkeepers.

Chris Seitz: The fourth overall pick in the 2007 MLS SuperDraft, Seitz was traded to the Union by Real Salt Lake in November of 2009. In his one year with the Union, he posted a 5-12-6 record with a 1.80 goals against average and was unseated by Brad Knighton. His contract was not renewed, and he was picked up in the Re-Entry Draft by the Seattle Sounders, who then traded him to FC Dallas. Seitz has been with Dallas since, amassing a 15-11-8 record and a 1.83 GAA. Notably, Seitz won the 2012 MLS W.O.R.K.S. Humanitarian of the Year Award for donating bone marrow to save the life of a stranger.

Brad Knighton: Knighton was an undrafted free agent who won a job with the New England Revolution in 2007. The Union selected him during the Expansion Draft, and while Knighton was initially the backup for the Union he was able to get eight starts during the 2010 season and managed a 3-3-1 record. He was released at the end of the season and spent a year with the Carolina Railhawks before making it in 2012 with the Vancouver Whitecaps. He went 9-6-5 over two seasons in Canada before being traded back to the Revolution, where he plays today.

Brian Perk: Drafted late in the 2010 SuperDraft by the Union, Perk was the club's third keeper for half of the inaugural season, until he was waived by the club. The LA Galaxy picked him up quickly thereafter, where he's carved out a niche as the Galaxy's third keeper behind players such as Jaime Penedo and Donovan Ricketts. Perk is 1-3-3 in his career with a 1.14 GAA

Danny Cepero: Remember Danny Cepero? It's okay if you don't - Cepero didn't actually play for the Union, however he did dress for the club's match against Real Salt Lake after Brad Knighton had received a red card against FC Dallas the week before. Prior to 2010, Cepero was in the New York Red Bulls' system, having gone 3-9-3 between 2007 and 2009 in MLS regular season play and leading the Red Bulls to the 2008 MLS Cup Final where they lost to the Columbus Crew. In 2010, Cepero joined the Harrisburg City Islanders - which is how he got the emergency call-up by the Union. In 2011, Cepero retired from playing and took a job as the assistant coach at Florida Gulf Coast University in Fort Myers. In 2013 he moved to the University of Louisville as an assistant coach and goalkeeper coach, where he remains today.
