James Andrew Wenger (born December 25, 1990) is an American soccer player who currently plays for Houston Dynamo in Major League Soccer.

College and amateur career[edit]

Wenger made an immediate impact in his first year at Duke University. He started in all 21 matches, and finished with four goals and three assists in a team-leading 1,896 minutes of action. In 2010, Wenger started in all of Duke's matches at center back and was a semi-finalist for the Hermann Trophy. In 2011, Wenger moved from center back to forward. He led the ACC with 17 goals and 42 points and was ranked fourth in the nation in total points and sixth in total goals, earning him the Hermann Trophy.[1]

In addition to being named Hermann Trophy winner for 2011, Wenger won ACC Freshman of the Year in 2009, ACC Defensive Player of the Year in 2010, and ACC Offensive Player of the Year in 2011.[2]

Wenger also played in the USL Premier Development League for Reading United[3] and the Carolina Dynamo.[4]

Professional career[edit]

Wenger was selected No. 1 overall in the 2012 MLS SuperDraft by the Montreal Impact.[5]

In April 2014, it was announced that Wenger had been traded to Philadelphia Union in exchange for Jack McInerney.[6]

In December 2015, Wenger was traded to Houston Dynamo along with teammate Cristian Maidana in exchange for allocation money and the No. 6 selection in the 2016 MLS SuperDraft.[7] He scored his first goal for the club in his debut, a 3–3 draw against the New England Revolution on March 6.[8]
