Adam Jahn (born January 5, 1991) is an American soccer player who plays as a forward for Columbus Crew SC in Major League Soccer.


Early and collegiate[edit]

The son of Tom and Barbara, Jahn attended Jesuit High School in Carmichael, California, where he played soccer. He was named the Gatorade California Player of the Year in 2007 and 2008, in addition to being named a NSCAA All-American. He continued his education and soccer career at Stanford University, where he played all four years, scoring 24 goals and 12 assists. In his senior year, he was named to the All-Pac-12 first team. While in college, he simultaneously played for the San Juan Lightning, an amateur club squad.

San Jose Earthquakes[edit]

Jahn was selected as the 15th pick in the 2013 MLS Supplemental Draft by his local team, the San Jose Earthquakes, on January 22, 2013.[1] On March 3, 2013, Jahn made his debut for the Earthquakes at Buck Shaw Stadium in the opening game of the season by coming on as a substitute in the 83rd minute for Ty Harden. San Jose lost the match 2–0 against Real Salt Lake.[2] He scored his first professional goal in his next game against the New York Red Bulls.[3] The goal came in the form of a right-footed volley off a far-post cross from Sam Cronin in the 83rd minute to tie the game. On a subsequent play, he headed the ball into the hand of Roy Miller, setting up the winning penalty kick by Chris Wondolowski to complete a 2-1 comeback victory.

Columbus Crew SC[edit]

On July 30, 2016, Jahn was traded to Columbus Crew SC in exchange for Targeted Allocation Money.[4] He made his club debut the next day, coming on as a substitute in a 3-0 loss to Toronto FC.[5] Jahn scored his first Crew SC goal in a 2-1 loss to the Philadelphia Union, after coming on as a substitute with 30 minutes to play.[6]
