    Joltin' Joe Zewe appears to be on trial with SC Pfullendorf in Germany:

    Beim Testspiel am Samstag gegen den TSV Crailsheim (14 Uhr in Pfullendorf) soll auch der 24-jährige US-Amerikaner Joseph Zewe von den Chicago Fire, der derzeit in Pfullendorf mittrainiert, eine Chance bekommen. ​

    Haven't yet checked to see if he played in the friendly against Crailsheim.

    I love hearing any kind of news on the whereabouts of former Nittany Lion players. So this club is in the Regionalliga Süd. How many divisions below the B1 is that?

    He's still there, and playing in friendlies (indoor at the moment, I think).

    Joe doesn't appear to have made the cut; the team named a couple more new signings on Friday, and he wasn't one of them.

    Just stumbled upon an update on this guy:

    Joe Zewe is now on the roster for the Pittsburgh Riverhounds of the USL 2nd Division. There are some who might perceive that as a real step down from where he's been.

    http://www.riverhounds.com/roster.php?player=75

    The USL team stats page shows that he's played in 7/11 matches this season and has 1 goal and 1 assist.

    http://www.uslsoccer.com/teams/2008/roster/8969532.html

    Pittsburgh is the worst team in the USL-2 so far this season.


    Quite a step down from a guy who once played with Viborg. I'm surprised he wasn't picked up by a USL-1 club, but football is a funny game. Anyone closer to the situation know what happened with Zewe?

    Should someone rename them the American, the English and the Russian?
