Player Profile: #30 Damion Lowe

New, 11 comments

He missed most of the season with an injury. The young Generation Adidas talent has the physical traits necessary to succeed in MLS.

Mike Russell

Acquired with the eighth pick overall in the 2014 SuperDraft the Jamaican youth international played at the University of Hartford. Lowe missed the season with an injury, but did manage to get in 180 minutes of Reserve League play. Damion is just 21 years old, so clearly can recover and have a future as a centerback in the league.

Offense:

Damion is fast and make a late run to the top of the box. Most with his speed are thought of on the flanks, but there is not much evidence that his passing is strong enough for that role. He should be able to develop into a set-play threat.

Defense:

His ability to read the game is questionable at this time. His ability to recover from errors is unquestionable. Look for him to play in either big/small pairings or on the a side trying to cover for an attacking fullback.

Physique:

Unlike MLS most well known speedy CBs Lowe is also tall and broad. Damion has the ideal build for an MLS defender.

Best Case 2015:

There is a chance that Damion Lowe could earn regular playing time for the 1st Team in 2015, especially with up to 10 non-league matches. Several other players picked near eight have contributed to other MLS teams - Jean-Baptiste, Berry, Anibaba, Soares, Besler and Alston were all similarly rated coming out of college.
