Real Name: Kellyn Acosta
HT: 5' 10" WT: 150
Homegrown Player
Age: 23 (07/25/1995)
Birthplace: Plano, TX
Hometown: Plano, TX

HOW ACQUIRED: Traded from FC Dallas on July 23, 2018.

One of the prized products of FC Dallas' prolific academy, Acosta logged three full seasons as a professional before his 21st birthday. A longtime US youth international, the Homegrown is a rangy, two-footed player most valuable in midfield though he has experience as a fullback. After a down 12 months, Acosta will look to have a resurgence with Colorado after being traded in the middle of the 2018 season.

INTERNATIONAL: The youngest member of the US squad at the 2013 U-20 World Cup, Acosta also took part in the 2015 U-20 cycle and took part in US Soccer's Bradenton Residency. He was called into Jurgen Klinsmann's 2016 January camp and earned his first senior cap in a friendly vs. Iceland on January 30 that year. He now has 17 senior appearances including a friendly against Ghana in July 2017 where he notched first international goal.

NOTES: Acosta signed a Homegrown contract with FC Dallas on July 12, 2012.
