Raymond Hornberger (born December 23, 1898; died May 1976 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) was a former U.S. soccer halfback. Hornberger earned four caps with the U.S. national team in 1924. His first two caps came in the 1924 Summer Olympics. The U.S. won its first game 1-0 against Estonia, but lost to Uruguay in the quarterfinals. Following its elimination from the tournament, the U.S. played two exhibition games. The U.S. defeated Poland, then lost to Ireland. That was Hornberger’s last game with the national team.[1]

At some point prior to the Olympics, he played for Disston A.A. Following the Olympics, he played five games with Fleisher Yarn during the 1924–25 American Soccer League season.[2]
