Real Name: Kyle Robert Beckerman
HT: 5' 11" WT: 165
Age: 34 (04/23/1982)
Birthplace: Crofton, MD
Hometown: Crofton, MD

HOW ACQUIRED: Acquired via trade from the Colorado Rapids in exchange for Mehdi Ballouchy on July 16, 2007.

Beckerman hasn’t always been the most heralded player, but the MLS lifer has long been one of the top defensive midfielders in the league. A hardnosed tackler with excellent positional sense, Beckerman has been RSL’s metronome for years, setting the tempo and starting many attacks by with his smart, accurate passing. The RSL captain helped turn the club around following his arrival in 2007, and serves as the team’s unquestioned on-field leader.

INTERNATIONAL: A late bloomer on the international scene, Beckerman didn’t get much of a chance under Bob Bradley, but flourished with the USMNT under Jurgen Klinsmann. He became a regular call-up of Klinsmann’s almost immediately after the German took over in 2011, going the full 90 in the US’s first-ever win at the Estadio Azteca in 2012, starring at the 2013 Gold Cup, playing a major role in World Cup qualifying matches and starting three of the US’s four games at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. He most recently was included on the USMNT roster for their November 2014 World Cup qualifying matches.

NOTES: A seven-time MLS All-Star, Beckerman has somehow never been selected to an MLS Best XI.
