Landon Donovan

America’s Brightest Goal Scorer

Landon Donovan, an AYSO alum, started playing soccer at age 2 in Ontario, California, after his older brother, Josh, introduced him to the sport.

“Josh would take me out to the backyard and kick the ball around with me,” said Donovan, who joined an AYSO team at age 5 and kept playing AYSO until age 14.

“The beauty of AYSO was that you had kids from all walks of life who just wanted to be active and run around and play soccer,” Landon said. “I started playing club soccer at the age of 10 but I wanted to continue playing AYSO because I enjoyed the camaraderie and the abilitiy to just play for the love of the game.”
