Career

College

Aloisi played four years of college soccer at Syracuse University, where he was named to the All-Big East third-team twice.

Professional

Aloisi was drafted 57th overall in the 2004 MLS SuperDraft by Los Angeles Galaxy.[1] He struggled to get much playing time in a deep 2004 Galaxy defense, and was traded to the San Jose Earthquakes in the off-season in a four-player deal. Along with the rest of his Earthquakes teammates, he moved to Houston to play for the new Houston Dynamo for the 2006 season. Following that season, Aloisi and the team decided to part ways, having never made a first team appearance for Houston.

For the 2007 Season, Aloisi returned to his home state to play for the Rochester Raging Rhinos in the USL First Division.[2] Aloisi took the rightback spot vacated by the departing Frank Sanfilippo, and eventually played in 19 games for the team,[2] before leaving to take a player/assistant coach role with the Long Island Rough Riders in the USL Premier Development League.
