Sean Johnson
Chicago Fire
Real Name: Sean Johnson
HT: 6' 3" WT: 217
Age: 27 (05/31/1989)
Birthplace: Atlanta, GA
Hometown: Lilburn, GA

HOW ACQUIRED: Selected in the fourth round (51st overall) of the 2010 SuperDraft.

The longest-tenured member of the Fire, Johnson is entering his seventh season as a pro in 2016. Entrenched as the Fire’s No. 1 goalkeeper since midway through his rookie season in 2010, the US international had a bit of uneven 2015. He gave up 32 goals in just 21 games, and missed a significant amount of time due to injuries, including a labral tear in his left shoulder that kept him out from early-September on. The excellent shot-stopper will be hoping for a healthy 2016, with an eye on improving fortunes with the Fire and re-earning a regular spot with the USMNT.

INTERNATIONAL: Johnson has been in the USMNT mix since January 2011, when he earned his first cap with the senior team in a friendly against Chile. A member of the US team at the 2009 U-20 World Cup and the U-23 squad at the 2012 Olympic qualifiers, Johnson has spent most of his senior national team career battling with Bill Hamid for a spot as a young understudy. His most notable appearance for the US came in 2013, when he played one game in the team’s run to the Gold Cup title.

COLLEGE: Started in both of his two seasons at the University of Central Florida, racking up seven shutouts and 191 saves in 37 career games.
