Michael Bryant is back with Detroit City FC for his second season with Le Rouge. Due to injuries around the squad in 2022, Bryant was asked to play a wide array of roles and positions, always showing his talent when being asked to do so. Most often Bryant was deployed as a center back and this pliability led to him making 30 appearances last season for Detroit City FC, starting 24 matches. Bryant also scored four goals last season.
Last season Michael Bryant made the jump to the USL Championship from NISA with Le Rouge, coming to Detroit City after spending three years with the Cal United Strikers – starting 36 of the 39 matches he appeared in. Bryant captained the NPSL’s Orange County FC from 2017-19 – making a historic run through the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup, knocking off the USL Championship’s Orange County SC in penalties and Las Vegas Lights FC before falling in the fourth round to the LA Galaxy. The midfielder from Portola Hills, California, played collegiately at Elmira, scoring 31 goals in 49 appearances, before transferring to Northwest Nazarene in Idaho where he earned All-Conference honors.
