Bryan Burke (born January 3, 1989) is an American soccer player who currently plays for Jacksonville Armada FC in the North American Soccer League, the second tier of the American soccer pyramid.


Burke was born and raised in Newport Beach, California and played at the collegiate level for the University of San Francisco Dons from 2007 to 2010.


After college, he played in the USL Premier Development League for the Kitsap Pumas in 2011, winning the most valuable player award and earning an appearance in the PDL Championship in his first season. After playing for the Orange County Blues in 2012, he went on trial with Sporting Kansas City and the San Jose Earthquakes before signing with Orlando City.

Burke made 15 match appearances in 2013, tallying two goals and four assists. On July 5, 2013 he sustained a season-ending injury against the Charleston Battery. Burke re-signed with Orlando City in 2014 but was released in September, a casualty of the club's transition to Major League Soccer.[1]

In February 2015 Burke signed with expansion side Louisville City FC of United Soccer League.[2] At season's end he was named the USL Defender of the Year.[3]

Burke signed with North American Soccer League club Jacksonville Armada FC in December 2015.[4]
