Career[edit]

College and Amateur[edit]

Lowery attended Wake Forest University where he played on the men's soccer team from 2001 to 2004.[1] In 2001, Lowery played for the Chesapeake Dragons of the USL Premier Development League. During the summer of 2004, he played one season with the Carolina Dynamo.[2]

Professional[edit]

In February 2005, Colorado Rapids selected Lowery in the third round (45th overall) in the 2005 MLS SuperDraft. He was also selected by the Philadelphia KiXX in the fourth round of the Major Indoor Soccer League draft, but signed with the Rapids.[3] Lowery played only two first team games and eleven reserve games with the Rapids during the 2005 season. On August 5, 2005, the Rapids sent Lowery on loan to Atlanta Silverbacks in the USL First Division.[4] He played five games with the Silverbacks.[5] The Rapids waived him on March 3, 2006.

Lowery signed with Kansas City Wizards for the 2007 season and played thirteen reserve games. He played in a crowded midfield and eventually asked to play center back. The Wiz released him following the season and he signed with San Jose Earthquakes on May 22, 2008. In March 2009, he signed with Carolina RailHawks in the USL First Division where he enjoyed considerable success being one of the leaders on the team in minutes played over his two seasons there.[6]

On March 30, 2011, Lowery signed a one-year contract with Montreal Impact of the North American Soccer League.[7]

After one season with Montreal, Lowery signed in February 2012 for a second spell with Carolina RailHawks.[8]
