Club Career

A German-American son of an US serviceman, Jerome Kiesewetter came through the ranks of his hometown club, Hertha Berlin. He graduated from the academy teams to the U-23 reserve team in the 2011-12 season, where he regularly started for much of the year despite being still eligible for Hertha's U-19 squad.

In the summer of 2012, Hertha were relegated from the Bundesliga and Kiesewetter left for greener pastures. In this case, he was offered a four-year professional deal with VfB Stuttgart -- a good reward and positive endorsement for a young, unproven player.

He will begin the 2012-13 season with Stuttgart's reserves, who play in the 3. Liga.

International Career

Kiesewetter is eligible for both the USA and Germany. To date, he has participated in U-20 camps for the US, but has not been selected for any official matches.

Former U.S. national team goalkeeper Kasey Keller will now be enshrined with some of the greats in American soccer.
