Youth and Amateur[edit]

Chirishian, who is of Armenian heritage, attended the AGBU Manoogian-Demirdjian School,[1] and played college soccer at Pasadena City College, where he was a team-mate of fellow Armenian-American soccer players Yura Movsisyan[2] and Gilbert Pogosyan.

During his college years Chirishian played for Ventura County Fusion in the USL Premier Development League, helping them to the PDL championship in 2009.[3] He also played for many LA-area amateur teams, including Santa Anita SC,[4] Rampage Soccer Club, and FC Pyunik LA.[5]


Chirishian trialed with Major League Soccer side Real Salt Lake in 2008 but was not offered a contract by the team. He signed his first professional contract in 2010 when he was signed by AC St. Louis of the USSF Division 2 Professional League.[6] He made his professional debut on April 22, 2010 in a game against Portland Timbers.[7]

Chirishian did not play professionally in 2011. He signed with Wilmington Hammerheads of the USL Pro league in February 2012.[8] He signed with his former team Ventura County Fusion in 2013 and later scored in his second debut match for the team.
