Lansdale native and former Philadelphia Union Academy and FC Delco standout Ramzi Qawasmy is the latest YSC Academy grad to turn pro.

The defender, who played college ball at Providence College and in USL League Two with West Chester United and Reading United, was signed to a contract with Louisville City in the USL Championship after a successful trial.

“We have had Ramzi in on trial over the last few weeks, and he has done an excellent job playing a lot of minutes for us against tough competition,” Louisville City head coach (and former Union player) Danny Cruz stated in a news release. “He is a physically strong center back who has a lot of quality on the ball. When we look at how he has integrated with the group and, most importantly, the type of person that he is, we feel he will be a great fit for us this year. His mentality, work rate and willingness to show up ready to learn every single day put him in a great position to be successful here.”

Louisville City FC has signed defender Ramzi Qawasmy out of a successful preseason trial, the club announced Thursday.

Qawasmy played five years at Providence, where last fall as a graduate student he received United Soccer Coaches All-East Region First Team and All-Big East Conference Second Team recognitions.

“Ever since I stepped into the team, my experience here has been nothing but exceptional.” Qawasmy stated in a news release. “From the coaching staff, the players, along with the rest of those in the organization, everyone has made this place feel like home, which has helped me adapt in such a short amount of time.

Qawasmy joins West Chester native Kyle Morton as local players on the USL Championship squad’s roster.
