HOW ACQUIRED: Acquired via trade with the Columbus Crew in exchange for San Jose's first round pick (No. 15 overall) in the 2011 MLS SuperDraft.
An MLS anti-hero, Steven Lenhart enters his ninth season hoping to return to form after missing all of 2015 with a knee injury. One of the most physically imposing players in the league, the target forward has 33 goals in 135 regular season appearances. If he can return to full health, he seems like the type of player Dom Kinnear loves to count on.
COLLEGE: Scored 38 goals and notched 12 assists in 61 games at Azusa Pacific University in Azusa, Calif. Lenhart was named NAIA All-American in 2007. He was named to the NAIA All-Tournament Team in 2006-07. He was honored both times as the NAIA Tournament’s Outstanding Offensive Player and helped lead Azusa Pacific to the 2007 NAIA national title. Lenhart was twice named to All-GSAC team in 2006 and 2007.
