Career Summary

Retired after the 2020 season.

A hardnosed tackler with excellent positional sense, Beckerman has been RSL’s metronome for years, setting the tempo and starting many attacks with smart, accurate passing. The RSL captain helped turn the club around following his arrival in 2007, and serves as the team’s unquestioned on-field leader.

INTERNATIONAL: A late bloomer on the international scene, Beckerman didn’t get much of a chance under Bob Bradley, but flourished with the USMNT under Jurgen Klinsmann. He became a regular call-up of Klinsmann’s almost immediately after the German took over in 2011, and now boasts some 58 international caps across major tournaments like the Copa America, Gold Cup, and World Cup.
