MLS’ Earthquakes nab Jahn

The San Jose Earthquakes on Tuesday made Adam Jahn the third MLS player to grow up in Davis, picking the former Stanford star in the first round of the league’s supplemental draft.

Jahn, 22, grew up in El Macero and played for the Davis Legacy club program before prepping at Jesuit. He joins former Blue Devil standouts Jalil Anibaba, a 2009 first-round pick by the Chicago Fire in the MLS superdraft, and Sam Reynolds, a goalie who played briefly in the league in 2007.

After Anibaba won in 2007, Jahn captured the next two California Boys Soccer Player of the Year awards before earning All-Pac-12 honors in all four of his seasons with the Cardinal.

The 6-foot-3, 185-pound forward scored 60 goals in his career, closing with a senior season that featured 13 goals, 30 points and four match-winners.

He is the son of Tom and Barbara Jahn, the head coach of UC Davis’ women’s swim team.

In anticipation of the draft, Jahn trained daily in Davis over the Christmas break with Kader Elmojahid.

“The time spent with Kader has sharpened my skills in anticipation of the challenge ahead,” Jahn said. “Kader is a master trainer and coach who loves soccer and, having played in World Cup and 10 years in Lige 1 in France, (he) has taught me skill and strategy that is truly invaluable.”

Jahn joins a San Jose Earthquakes club that captured the MLS Supporter’s Shield as the league’s top regular-season team in 2012. The Earthquakes accumulated a league-high 66 points (19-6-9), and the capture of the Supporter’s Shield earned the club a berth into the 2013-14 CONCACAF Champion’s League.

San Jose opened its 2013 preseason camp Monday, and will open the regular season on March 3 against Real Salt Lake at Buck Shaw Stadium in Santa Clara.
