SUMNER, Wash. (April 15, 2019) — The Seattle Sounders U23s announced three more player signings on Monday as they continue to fill out their roster for the 2019 USL League Two season. Mason Marcey (cover photo), Jimmy Filerman, and Tomás Jamett will join the team for the summer from colleges on the East Coast.
Marcey comes to the Sounders U23s after having won a USL League Two national championship with the Charlotte Eagles in 2017. The Charlotte, North Carolina, native transferred to Valparaiso University ahead of his sophomore season in 2018, scoring one goal.
Filerman, a defender, played in all but one game for Old Dominion in 2018 as a redshirt junior as the Monarchs made a run to the Conference USA semifinals. Filerman played for the D.C. United academy for five years as a youth player before moving on to play in college.
A native of Chile, Jamett is no stranger to the Pacific Northwest or the Sounders, having played for U23 assistant coach Liviu Bird on the Kitsap Pumas of the National Premier Soccer League in 2018 before a short training stint with Seattle Sounders 2 at the end of the summer. His output soared as a sophomore at Iona College in 2018, scoring three goals and adding one assist as a fullback, starting all but one game for the Gaels.
All player signings are pending league and federation approval.
The Sounders U23 team has played in USL League Two for the past seven seasons and has helped over 60 players move on to professional contracts. The U23s are the amateur affiliate of 2016 MLS Cup champion Seattle Sounders FC and Tacoma Defiance. The 2019 Sounders U23 season kicks off with a weekend doubleheader on May 17 and 19 against the defending national champion Calgary Foothills FC and Lane United, respectively.
