    Looks like onetime U.S. youth international Dimitris "Dimi" Colon was with SSV Reutlingen for at least part of last season in Germany. He's listed in the "not in picture" section of this site:

    We'll have to watch this one to see if/where he resurfaces for the upcoming season.

    Is he related to Semi?

    I think it's spelled "Semmi."

    Late last month, Dimi was spotted on trial with German D4 club FC Emmendingen 03. However, he doesn't appear to have signed with them.

    It looks like Colon is now at TSV Schwieberdingen.

    If you guessed "TSV Schwieberdingen" in last month's "Where Is Dimi?" contest, please come to the DJ booth to claim your prize.

    Apparently, he accepted. Over the winter break, Dimi signed with D4 club TSV Crailsheim.

    It looks like this guy may have ended 07/08 with SV Fellbach, but I'm not sure where he is now.

    The article is 3 years old (no idea why it is dated January 2009, it's definitely not a current article based on content though). The Colon part is about how he joined Reutlingen during the winter break in 2005, but had a knee injury which led to the contract being terminated before he ever played for them.

    He played for SV Böblingen in 2007/2008, but it seems as if he isn't there anymore.

    Tranfermarkt still has him at SV Böblingen:

    http://www.transfermarkt.co.uk/en/dimitris-colon/profil/spieler_6485.html

    But he's not listed or pictured w/the A team at their website:

    Yeah, but I wouldn't trust transfermarkt too much for squads below the 5th division.

    Anyway, Colon seems to have changed careers (should be him - location fits, lists soccer as one of his interests, and says he's a native English speaker):
