Revolution sign central defender Otto Loewy

The New England Revolution announced Thursday that they have signed central defender Otto Loewy to the team.

Loewy, a native or Liberia, is a U.S. permanent resident and will count as a domestic player on the roster. That's important because it enables the Revs to still sign players who are from outside the United States.

Loewy played four seasons at Wintrhop University, starting in 79 games. He earned all-region honors as a senior in 2008 but suffered a leg injury in his final collegiate game, preventing him from participating in the 2010 MLS Combine.

Otto performed well during his trial with us in Georgia, Revolution Vice President of Player Personnel Michael Burns said. Hes a strong player and will provide added depth along our backline this season.

He's set to join the team sometime next week.

The Revs (1-0-1, 4 pts.) host the expansion Portland Timbers this Saturday at 7:30 p.m. at Gillette Stadium. Follow the action on Comcast SportsNet New England and CSNNE.com.
