HOW ACQUIRED: Acquired via trade with the Houston Dynamo on June 9, 2009.
Wondolowski is one of the ultimate success stories in MLS, going from late-round Supplemental Draft pick and bit-part player to one of the league's most feared goalscorers and decorated players. After five seasons as a reserve with San Jose and Houston, "Wondo" enjoyed his breakout season in 2010, riding a late scoring surge to 18 goals and the MLS Golden Boot. The Quakes captain enters his 15th season in the league needing just two goals to break Landon Donovan’s all-time MLS goal scoring record.
