Age: 28 (12/25/1987)
Birthplace: Harvey, IL

HOW ACQUIRED: Acquired via trade with Orlando City SC after being selected from Columbus Crew SC in the MLS Expansion Draft on December 10, 2014.

Now entering his sixth year in MLS, Gehrig is one of the most experienced players on the Fire roster. A Chicago-area native, Gehrig was a regular for the Fire in 2015, appearing in 25 league matches – all starts – at center back before being shut down in September due to a stress fracture. He continued to work his way back from injury in the 2016 preseason – he’ll have more competition for minutes once he does make it all the way back, as he’ll have to battle new acquisitions Johan Kappelhof and Joao Meira for playing time.

COLLEGE: Starred for the Loyola University Chicago Ramblers, scoring 10 goals and recording 10 assists in 78 appearances from 2006-2009. Was named to the Horizon League first-team in his final three seasons at Loyola.

NOTES: Grew up in the Chicagoland area in Schererville, Indiana … Went undrafted in the 2010 MLS SuperDraft, and didn’t stick in a preseason trial with Kansas City … Was noticed by Columbus at a 2010 camp in Omaha, Nebraska, and signed with Crew SC ahead of the 2011 season.
