Wizards/Sporting Player Registry

2/11/2014 UPDATE: I've updated the list again with where players currently are. Current players are in bold.

One of my goals with my former Wizards updates I do was to keep people updated on how all the former Wizards around the world were doing. Recently I ended up trying to find the former Wizards again. Here is a list of every player listed in the Wizards registry in the media guide, along with Eric Frimpong, who the Wizards drafted but is not listed in the media guide. The list also includes goalkeepers that I assume were emergency league keepers at one time or another, because Preston Burpo for example was never officially on the Wizards roster so I have to assume he was an emergency addition for a game or two.

The status for each player is whether the player is still playing the game or not at some professional level. On some of the players it is my best guess. There are also some players who I was unable to get updates on, but I'm still trying. I will be updating this list with any updates I get on these players and the post is now linked over on the right under features. If you have any updates on former Wizards, please feel free to post a comment in this section or shoot me an email.
Players in bold are currently with KC.

Re: Frimpong, perhaps instead of saying "In prison for rape" you could say "Incarcerated in California pending appeal", or something of that nature, especially given the Constitutional questions surrounding his conviction. Sounds a little more fair to me.

Mike said...


Thanks for catching that, I'd meant to go back and change that before posting to something different, but forgot. I'm going to try and leave the politics out of the post as a whole (although I agree that there are plenty of questions about his conviction).

MOUFWASH said...

quite a list, keep up the good work

So Burciaga is still playing?

Mike said...


I've heard rumors of trials for Burciaga (in Mexico), but nothing specific.

Reepicheep said...

Man Mike, I'm not sure if I should be impressed with your work here or scared for you :)

Totally interesting stuff.

After reading this, I hope mike is never trying to find me, cause he'd do it really easily.

cristman is at the la galaxy, no?

Mike said...

Yes, missed that when going through and editing it.

Nathan Martin said...

Impressive work here. Anybody hear the ultimate reasoning for Auvary's inauspicious departure: money, locker room problems, playing time, etc...?

Really quite strange that such a solid contributor from last year is dealt for draft picks in 2013 in such a hush-hush manner.

Garcia is palying for the Kansas Magic indoor tam.

cheezwiz said...

Which player has played for the most MLS teams? Cristman has to be high on the list?

The Footy Chronicles said...

Yes, Christman is surely high on that list. There's also Garcia. And also think about Kei, who has moved, on average, from an MLS club every one or two years...

Mike said...

@cheezwiz quick check, its Carey Talley, DC, KC, Dallas, RSL, Chivas, New York
