RailHawks Re-sign Kupono Low

Posted February 12, 2013

— The player RailHawks fans have designated as Mr. RailHawk will return for the 2013 season. Defender, Kupono Low, has re-signed with the RailHawks and is now the last member of the inaugural RailHawks squad from 2007 still on the 2013 roster. With his name listed throughout the RailHawks record books, Low may be most known as a staple at left-back and having the designation as scoring the first goal in franchise history on April 21, 2007.

“Kupono is a consummate pro and is someone that every coach would want on his team,” said RailHawks head coach Colin Clarke. “He brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the lineup and has been one of the top players in our league for a number of years.”

Low began his professional career with the Syracuse Salty Dogs in 2004 before moving to Ireland to play with Sligo Rovers for two seasons. Upon returning to the U.S., Low joined the Virginia Beach Mariners where his path would cross with Colin Clarke for the first time. Since joining the RailHawks in 2007, Low has received numerous team awards and has been named as part of the All-League team four times. In 2011, the 34 year old defender tallied a total of 2,326 minutes played and as a member of the RailHawks has only missed postseason play once, in 2008.
Low would cross paths with Clarke once more as Low made his international debut playing for the Clarke-managed Puerto Rico national team. He scored his first international goal against Trinidad and Tobago in January 2008. Low earned three caps before modified eligibility requirements ended his career.

Low and the RailHawks will open the NASL Spring Season on Saturday, April 13 with the Grand Opening of the New WakeMed Soccer Park as the RailHawks host league foe FC Edmonton. On February 24, the RailHawks will host, 2012 MLS Playoff participant, Vancouver Whitecaps FC, in the 5th Annual Hilton Garden Inn Durham Southpoint Community Shield Match. RailHawks 2013 Season Tickets and the Whitecaps 3-Pack are on sale now and can be purchased by calling the St. Lawrence Homes Box Office at 919-459-8144 or emailing tickets@CarolinaRailHawks.com. Additional information on 2013 ticket packages is available by visiting www.CarolinaRailHawks.com/STH. In November 2012, the Carolina RailHawks announced that it will donate 10% of its total ticket revenue for each of the 2013-2015 seasons back to the Triangle community. The RailHawks donation will focus on supporting soccer-related programs that will help to further build and strengthen soccer in our area.
