PHOENIX (December 10, 2018) — Phoenix Rising Football Club announced today it signed former Columbus Crew and San Jose Earthquakes forward Adam Jahn for the 2019 season pending league and federation approval. Per club policy, the details of the contract will not be made public.
“I’m extremely excited and honored to start this next phase of my career with Phoenix Rising FC. I’m committed to doing anything in my power to help the team bring home a USL Championship, and I can’t wait to get started!”
Jahn most recently played with the Columbus Crew, where he appeared in 41 matches over three seasons and tallied six goals with one assist. In 2017, Jahn scored the game-winning penalty kick in the first-round of the MLS playoffs to eliminate Atlanta United. It’s the last time Atlanta United, the current MLS Champion, fell in the playoffs.
Jahn, a target forward, was selected 15th overall in the 2013 MLS Supplemental Draft by his local team San Jose Earthquakes. He made his professional debut as a substitute on March 3, 2013, and scored his first professional goal in the next match on March 10 against New York Red Bulls. Over the course of seven seasons in MLS with the Earthquakes and Crew, Jahn has appeared in 103 matches and has scored 12 goals while providing two assists.
During a brief loan spell with Oklahoma City Energy FC last season, Jahn scored three goals and had an assist in 10 appearances. Jahn won a USL Cup while on loan with Sacramento Republic in 2014. That season Jahn was third on the team in goals with six in 17 appearances.
With the addition of Jahn, Phoenix Rising’s roster now stands at 13 players for the 2019 season.
