Colorado Rapids 2019 Season By the Numbers

16

16 years and 262 days to be exact. That number represents the youngest player ever to make his professional debut for the Rapids. The mark was set, of course, by Homegrown Sebastian Anderson on April 27 against Atlanta United FC. Anderson added to his storybook season in the early moments of a home match against New York City FC on July 20 when he scored his first goal to break the milestone set by his teammate and friend, Cole Bassett, who held both honors for less than one year.

 


 

10

The number of set-piece assists recorded by the bearded maestro, Jack Price. The mark represents the highest total of set-piece assists in a single MLS season, surpassing Benny Feilhaber who had managed nine in 2016. 

 


 

25

Combined goals by Kei Kamara and Diego Rubio. This season marked the first that the Rapids had double digit scorers since 2010 when Omar Cummings and Conor Casey reached double digits.

 


 

58

Number of goals scored by the Rapids in 2019, tying them with Atlanta United, Philadelphia and the LA Galaxy. This total marked the second highest single-season tally in club history behind the 1998 team that reached 62.

 


 

29

MLS Team of the Week Honors dished out to Rapids players this season. Kei Kamara led the way with five league-wide weekly honors while Andre Shinyashiki tallied the only MLS Goal of the Week for the Rapids with his dramatic stoppage-time stunner against Portland in Week 1.

 


 

1.74

Average points per game racked up by the Rapids after winning at LA Galaxy on May 19; a number that trailed only NYCFC and LAFC (the two respective conference winners during the regular season) in all of MLS over the same time period.

 


 

3060

Minutes that make up an entire 34-game MLS season and also the number of minutes played by ironman right back, Keegan Rosenberry, during his first season in Colorado. Haris Medunjanin and Jack Elliott, both of the Philadelphia Union, were the only other outfield players in the league to reach the mark in 2019.

 


 

0.97

Combined goals and assists tallied per game by players aged 24 and under during the 2019 season. Among the group to contribute to this mark were MLS Rookie of the Year Andre Shinyashiki (7 goals, 3 assists), Jonathan Lewis (5 goals, 3 assists), Sam Nicholson (2 goals, 4 assists), Cole Bassett (2 goals, 2 assists), Kellyn Acosta (2 goals, 2 assists), Sebastian Anderson (1 goal).

 


 

36

The total number of goals scored at home by the Rapids, which represents the most in franchise history (previous high was 31 in 1998).
