Sacramento Republic FC announced today the addition of forward Deshorn Brown and defender Danny Reynolds to the first-team roster for the remainder of the 2022 USL Championship season, pending league and federation approval.
“Deshorn and Danny are very important pieces to add at this critical stage of the season,” said Republic FC President and General Manager Todd Dunivant. “Deshorn is a proven goal scorer in our league and everywhere he has gone, and we’re excited to bring Danny back after a very promising training camp.”
Brown joins Republic FC after four seasons in the Indian Super League, featuring for Bengaluru FC and Northeast United FC. The striker has experience in both the USL Championship and Major League Soccer, most recently featuring domestically in USL for Tampa Bay Rowdies in 2017 and Oklahoma City Energy FC from 2018-2019. In MLS, he logged 79 appearances between Colorado Rapids and D.C. United from 2013 to 2017. With Colorado, he posted back-to-back 10-goal seasons in 2013 and 2014, helping the Rapids to the 2013 MLS Cup Playoffs. The forward also brings international experience to the Indomitable Club, having made 15 career appearances and scoring two goals for the Jamaican national team between 2013 and 2015.
Prior to starting his professional career, Brown played at the youth level in his native Jamaica before moving to the U.S. to play collegiately at the University of Mobile in Alabama. Following his sophomore season he transferred to the University of Central Florida, netting 13 goals in 16 games for the Knights. After his first year in Orlando he elected to forego his senior season to enter the MLS SuperDraft, where he was selected sixth overall by Colorado.
Reynolds was initially acquired in December in advance of the 2022 season. He rejoins the roster after participating in the team’s training camp and the completion of his registration. Prior to joining the Indomitable Club, he featured for the National Premier Soccer League’s Southern States SC, leading the Stars with six goals in their inaugural season, which saw them reach the league quarterfinals. The Englishman made his professional debut in 2020 with USL Championship side Tacoma Defiance after being drafted 35thin the 2020 MLS SuperDraft by MLS affiliate Seattle Sounders FC.
Reynolds was born and raised in the UK, where he played for multiple youth programs including Cheltenham Town FC, Reading FC, and Oxford United. He moved to the U.S. to play at the collegiate level in 2015, appearing in three seasons with Louisville from 2015-2017 before moving to UNC Wilmington for the 2018 and 2019 seasons. His college career saw him tally nine scores in 73 appearances.
