Real Name: Jesse Gonzalez
HT: 6' 4" WT: 180
Homegrown Player
Age: 21 (05/25/1995)
Birthplace: Edenton, NC

HOW ACQUIRED: FC Dallas made Gonzalez its 10th Homegrown player signing on March 21, 2013.

A hulking yet nimble shotstopper with poise beyond his years, Jesse Gonzalez appeared to be on a gradual path toward a starting role with FC Dallas until mid-2015, when he stormed ahead of veterans Dan Kennedy and Chris Seitz to seize the No. 1 job as FCD surged to the top of the Western Conference standings. The 20-year-old averaged 0.91 goals against in 11 regular-season starts, and saved two penalty kicks to help FCD knocked off Seattle in a dramatic PK shootout in the Western Conference semifinals.  

INTERNATIONAL: Dual-eligible for the US and Mexico, Gonzalez has risen through El Tri's youth system, but initially accepted an offer from Jurgen Klinsmann to join the US national team at their 2016 January camp, only to make an about-face and accept Mexico's call instead. Made two saves in a PK shootout to help Mexico win the CONCACAF Under-20 Championship (vs. Panama, 4-2 on PKs after a 1-1 draw) and qualify for the 2015 FIFA Under-20 World Cup.
