Age: 33 (08/22/1984)

HOW ACQUIRED: Acquired via trade with the Columbus Crew on December 12, 2013 in exchange for allocation money and a 2015 third round SuperDraft pick.

When it comes to picking the most distinguished defenders in the history of MLS, Chad Marshall’s name belongs near the top of the list. No defender in league history has ever won more than Marshall’s three MLS Defender of the Year honors, a testament to both his longevity and consistency as one of the best center backs to ever suit up in MLS. Marshall, often colloquially called ‘Air Marshall’ for his imperious aerial ability, is deceptively good with his feet and distribution ability despite standing a lumbering 6-foot-4. Under his steady, calm demeanor and ironman-like durability, a number of defensive setups have climbed to the top of MLS in effectiveness.

INTERNATIONAL: Marshall was a first choice center back with the U17 and U20 U.S. national teams from 2000-2003 before graduating to the senior side in 2005. He earned 11 caps over the next five years, last featuring  in 2010 before missing the final cut for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.

COLLEGE: Marshall spent two immensely productive years at Stanford, starting 39 games and guiding the 2002 Cardinal to the College Cup final. As a sophomore, he was selected to the All-Pac-12 first team before turning pro that offseason.
