Career Summary

HOW ACQUIRED: Dallas selected Hollingshead with the 20th (2nd round) overall pick in the 2013 MLS SuperDraft.

A versatile and technical player, he typically plays left back, though he's proven he can also play higher up the pitch. Hollingshead had four goals and one assist in 20 regular season appearances, including 19 starts in an outstanding 2020 season.

COLLEGE: Starred at UCLA, where he earned All-American and Pac-12 Player of the Year honors in 2012.

NOTES: Was named 2017 MLS WORKS Humanitarian of the Year for his battle back from a broken neck sustained in a car accident after stopping to care for a stranded motorist. Hollingshead is the second-youngest of four brothers; his older brother Scott also played soccer at UCLA. Hollingshead elected to step away from the sport for a year after Dallas selected him in the SuperDraft, doing missionary work in Haiti and fulfilling a promise to his brother Scott to help him build a church in their native Sacramento. He returned to soccer in 2014.
