HOW ACQUIRED: Acquired in a trade with the New York Red Bulls on February 23, 2007.
A bruising target striker, Sandoval has usually come off the bench during his RSL career, serving as a spot starter when regular options are out due to injury or international duty. The University of New Mexico product holds the ball up relatively well, and does a good job of bringing his teammates into attacking moves.
COLLEGE: After spending his freshman year at San Diego State, Sandoval transferred to the University of New Mexico for his final three years of college. The Albuquerque native finished his UNM career with 28 goals and 17 assists, and was named a second-team All-American for his 15-goal, seven-assists senior season.
