Retriever Alumni Update – Sept. 24, 2009

This week in the alumni update, we’ll take a look at an unfortunate injury in the USL-1’s final week of the regular season and a quick look overseas as basketball starts up for some former Dawgs.

United Soccer League – Division I

Former Retriever Matt Watson played his final game of the season for the Carolina RailHawks last Friday against Montreal. The RailHawks won the game 2-0, but in the 11th minute, Watson went down after a bad tackle and suffered a broken fibula. We all wish him the best of luck as he rehabs and looks to bounce back.

Watson finished the year with 19 matches played with a goal and an assist. Carolina plays in the quarter-finals this weekend against Vancouver.

Professional Basketball

Former UMBC basketball star Darryl Proctor will officially make his professional debut on Sunday as the Bakken Bears begin their Danish Cup defense at Brønderslev BK 70. Bakken, who won the Cup and the Danish League Championship last year, begins its regular season on Oct. 1.

Mike Housman and Toyota Tsusho make their regular season debut on Oct. 18. Andrew Feeley, who played last year for Toyota and the past three years in  Japan, checked in with the UMBC Dawg Blog this week to let us know he’s in Slovenia working out for a few teams. Good luck to him, we certainly hope he gets picked up so we can continue to follow his career.

As always, if you know of any former Retrievers playing in professional or semi-professional leagues around the world, please email tfenster@umbc.edu and we’ll start tracking them. Thanks for reading.
