You might not know the name unless he played for one of your teams, but 28 year old professional goalkeeper Andrew Weber, who was on the San Jose Earthquakes roster last season and had stints with DC and Montreal, is now a contestant on a reality TV show. With his twin brother. Yes, really.
That’s Andrew on the right.
