Snip: But when the excitement of being drafted into MLS settled and Keegan reevaluated his options, he chose to go overseas. Putting his dream on the back burner wasn’t a decision that came easily, but Keegan said the opportunity to try out for Maccabi Haifa F.C., one of the biggest teams in Israel’s top soccer league, was “just too good to pass up.” “I really enjoyed my time in Israel,” Keegan said. “Everyone within the city lived and breathed Maccabi Haifa.” While Maccabi Haifa didn’t offer him a contract, Keegan was exposed to a higher level of play in Israel and was able to improve his game. From there, Keegan trained with FC Lustenau, a team in Austria’s lower league, before returning to the United States to play with Jersey Express S.C. over the summer. The Newark-based amateur team is part of the Premier Development League, the top-level amateur soccer competition in the United States. Now, Keegan is signed with FCA Darmstadt in Germany. http://www.bupipedream.com/sports/22380/former-bu-star-keegan-chasing-dream/ Played at Binghamton U. and was a Supplemental Draft selection. http://www.bubearcats.com/index.php/athlete/jake_keegan http://www.mlssoccer.com/players/jake-keegan I actually saw him play (on TV) as a freshman and thought he might turn into a pro prospect. Good to see him getting a chance.
