PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE

2018 (S2): After a breakout season in 2017, Rogers was named Vice Captain of the squad ahead of his second professional campaign. Though his number of USL appearances decreased from 25 to 11, primarily through frequent U.S. Youth National Team call ups, he managed to demonstrate significant progress on the pitch, with the defender recording 22 interceptions, 22 aerial duels won, and 45 clearances in just 813 minutes.

2017 (S2): Rogers made his professional debut in the season-opening loss to Sacramento Republic FC on March 26. He scored his first professional goal against San Antonio FC on April 25.

Rogers was called into the U.S. U-18 camp in March of 2017. He has since become a mainstay with the U.S. U-20 national team, receiving call ups to several domestic and international camps, as well as to the 2019 U-20 World Cup qualifying tournament, where he made three starts.

YOUTH EXPERIENCE

Prior to joining S2, Rogers served as the captain for Sounders FC’s U-18 squad. He spent four years in the youth system after joining the club’s youth setup from Sounders Academy Partner Club, Eastside FC.
