Dionysius “DZ” Harmon returns to the Lowcountry for his second season with the Black and Yellow.
Harmon quickly developed into a regular contributor in the Charleston midfield in 2021, asserting his presence on the pitch with his strength and toughness, while displaying his intellect with the ball and his speed. DZ tallied two goals, two assists and 17 chances created while appearing in a co-team-high 29 matches.
The midfielder signed with the Battery just ahead of the 2021 campaign after competing with Coastal Carolina University in the NCAA Tournament in the days prior.
Harmon, born in Monrovia, Liberia, hails from Loganville, Georgia, and arrives in Charleston after a successful run with the Chanticleers. The 6-1 midfielder appeared in 44 matches for Coastal from 2018 through 2020, notching one goal and four assists. Harmon’s exceptional play during the 2019 season earned him All-Sun Belt honors.
DZ accumulated some silverware during his time in Myrtle Beach, winning two Sun Belt Tournaments (2019 and 2020) and one regular-season conference title (2020). Harmon made the decisive conversion during the penalty shoot-out to win the 2020 conference tournament, defeating Georgia State 4-3 on penalties.
