The New York Red Bulls have signed goalkeeper Evan Louro as a Homegrown Player. Louro joins New York after three seasons of college soccer at the University of Michigan.
The South River, N.J. native played with Detroit City FC in 2016.
“I really enjoyed the opportunity to coach Evan this past summer, although his time with us was cut short,” Detroit City FC head coach Ben Pirmann commented. “He is a very good goalkeeper and an extremely enjoyable person. Evan will work very hard and do well with the New York Red Bulls. We wish him the best throughout the upcoming preseason and the rest of his career!”
Louro finished his college career at UM with 46 appearances, 4,248 minutes played and a 1.17 Goals Against Average. He totaled 155 saves and 12 shutouts.
As a sophomore, he recorded a career-best 1.05 Goals Allowed Average, which ranks No. 2 in single-season program history, and seven clean sheets. As a freshman, the goalkeeper recorded a team-high 28 saves and tied for most wins and shutouts. His breakout rookie season earned him a call-up to the U.S. U-20 Men’s National Team Camp.
The Saint John Vianney graduate has played on numerous levels of the U.S. Youth National Teams since 2009. He has been involved with the Red Bulls academy since 2008 and helped the Red Bulls U-16s to a U.S. Soccer Development Academy championship in 2012.
Other NPSL players that have signed Homegrown contracts in the past include Bradley Bourgeois, Brandon Allen, Chris Thorsheim, Mael Corboz, and Scott Thomsen.
