MICHAEL ADUBATO - Tuesday, January 24, 2012
Stetson University alumnus Nate Weiss has signed with German side FSV Erlangen-Brück this month, after leaving Sweden's Råslätts SK.

"I signed with the club, which is in the Oberliga," the midfielder, who owns a Latvian Cup winners medal, told YA. "They are known as the farm team for 1.FC Nurenberg, so it's a good move for me."

After looking into a few options, where he also trialed with 3rd Bundesliga team Osnabruck, Weiss felt that the best move at this time would be with the Oberliga side.

"I worked with IFX X-change, a company that deals with setting up trials for Americans in Germany. It was them who arranged the Osnabruck trial as well."

"The two year deal I have is structured that if the team goes up to Regionalliga I will stay with them next season. In Bavaria the top nine teams will advance to the next level, as the German soccer pyramid has been restructured. I am in contact with Osnabrück and could go back again in the summer."

Weiss has been carving out a European career for himself ever since landing in Spain for the 2007-8 season with Spanish team U.D Arenal. From there he moved on to the Irish top division team Longford Town, followed by stints in Sweden and Latvia.

"So far everything has gone much easier than it ever has in regards to my visa and registration. IFX sorted everything out within a day after I signed and I was pretty delighted with that, so now I can start playing.

Weiss has been training full time with the team and is expected to make his debut this weekend.

What does girls have anything to do with soccer? Nate seems like a fine young man, he didn't come across as a "player", in that sense, Terrel. :)

I play him in Sweden. Good player and like so much aggressive play. I dont know about the girls though. Maybe 2, but 5? no ;-)

I hear that this guy is a winner. Needs to stay on the right path to stardom, and what Terrel says is contradicting that! Let's make sure the comment board isn't skewered with impersonating comments...

It's a minor point, but "alumni" is a plural word. "Alumnus" is the singular.

The German 5th division? Hey, I played in the German 5th division but at that time it was the Verbandesliga(2002). Good luck to him! Hope he can move up to at least the 3rd Division.

Nate reminds me of that Johnny Cash song - "I've been everywhere, man!" Good to see that he is sticking to his dream and has a positive attitude.
