With the eighth pick in the 2014 MLS SuperDraft, the Seattle Sounders chose defender Damion Lowe from the University of Hartford.
Lowe was a stalwart in the backline at Hartford, helping set a new school record of 0.84 goals-against-average in 2013. He played in the Premier Development League in 2013 for Reading United and appeared in 10 regular-season games. He helped Reading to a division best defense that allowed 12 goals in 14 games. He started in two of Reading's three games during the U.S. Open Cup.
Lowe is a former Jamiacan U-20 player and played on Jamaica's 2013 CONCACF U-20 Championship team. He played in all three games and scored a goal in Jamaica's 4-1 win over Puerto Rico. Lowe was a late addition to the Generation Adidas, meaning he won't count against the salary cap in 2014.
