Real Name: Gyasi Zardes
HT: 6' 1" WT: 187
Designated Player
Age: 28 (09/02/1991)
Birthplace: Hawthorne, CA

HOW ACQUIRED: Traded from LA Galaxy on Jan. 20, 2018. Signed a multi-year contract extension on May 12, 2019.

After a breakout 2014 season in which he scored 16 goals to go with a pair of assists, Zardes experienced tough times in the production department thanks in part to injury (2016) and the worst Galaxy season ever (2017). But a move to the Crew rejuvenated his career as the athletic forward struck for a career-high 19 goals.

INTERNATIONAL: He's earned 42 caps (33 starts) and tallied six goals since making his USMNT debut in a friendly against Chile on January 28, 2015. Most recently, Zardes started in back to back friendlies against Panama (January 27) and Costa Rica (February 2).

COLLEGE: Zardes burst onto the scene as a sophomore at CSU Bakersfield in 2011, scoring 18 times in 20 games while helping lead the Roadrunners to a berth in the NCAA Division I Tournament for the first time in school history. His 18 goals that season were the fourth most in Division I college soccer that year and he was selected the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Player of the Year and a semifinalist for the MAC Hermann Trophy, which is awarded annually to the top player in college soccer. In 2012, Zardes followed up his breakout season by scoring 15 goals and adding nine assists, each of which were team-highs, in 17 games.
