Career[edit]

Youth[edit]

Hopeau, from Kapolei, Hawaii, began his youth career with Hawaii Rush Soccer Club.

In 2014, Hopeau was invited to participate in the Real Madrid Select camp, an invitation only soccer camp for the top 36 youth players around the world.[1]

While playing for the Kapolei High School boys soccer team, Hopeau was named the 2015 and 2016 OIA West player of the year.[2][3]

After being noticed as a standout with his Hawaii Rush club team, Hopeau joined the Sounders Academy in 2016 after the Sounders claimed the state of Hawaii as a homegrown territory, making him eligible to sign as a homegrown player.[4] Hopeau impressed enough at the academy level to earn two appearances, including one start, as an amateur with the Sounders FC second team in 2016.[5]

Professional[edit]

Hopeau signed his first professional contract on March 22, 2017, joining Seattle Sounders FC 2 ahead of the 2017 USL season. Hopeau was the first Sounders Academy player from Hawaii to sign a professional contract with the team.[6] Hopeau made his professional debut on March 26, 2017, starting in S2's season-opening 2-1 loss to Sacramento.[7]
