Thomas Adam West (born May 7, 1986 in Gig Harbor, Washington) is an American soccer player who currently plays for Seattle Sounders FC U-23 in the USL Premier Development League.

Career[edit]

Youth and College[edit]

West attended Bellarmine Preparatory School where he played on the 2004 Washington State championship soccer team (voted National Champions). He was All State that season.[1] In 2004, he entered the University of Washington, playing on the Huskies soccer team for two seasons.

Professional[edit]

In the spring of 2007, West tried out for the Seattle Sounders of the USL First Division, who offered him a contract in April.[2] West won the 2007 USL First Division championship with the Sounders, and played in 29 games during his two years with the club.

In the fall of 2007, West also played with the Milwaukee Wave of the Major Indoor Soccer League.[3]

Seattle Sounders FC released West[4] before the inaugural season. Having been unable to secure a professional contract, he subsequently signed with Tacoma Tide of the USL Premier Development League for the 2009 season.[5]

West signed with USSF Division 2 club Rochester Rhinos on February 16, 2010 where the Rhinos won the regular season title.[6] He then signed with Fort Lauderdale Strikers of the North American Soccer League on February 24, 2011 where the Strikers made it to the NASL championship game, but fell short in the final leg.[7] He left the club after the conclusion of the 2011 season.

In 2012 West joined with the newly promoted club, FC Edmonton of the NASL. Becoming the regular at left back by the season's start, injuries held West back to only 10 appearances for the year. The team struggled in the absence of West finishing at the bottom of the table for the year. In 2013, West played in his hometown with the Seattle Sounders FC U-23 in the PDL. Two games into the season West suffered a torn acl and is scheduled to miss the rest of the season.
