Sydney Rae Leroux Dwyer (born May 7, 1990) is a professional soccer player and Olympic gold medalist who currently plays as a forward for Orlando Pride in the National Women's Soccer League (NWSL).

Born in Canada to a Canadian mother and an American father, Sydney came up through the Canadian system and represented Canada at various youth levels, until she chose to play for the United States women's national under-20 soccer team starting in 2008 and later began playing for the U.S. senior national team in 2012. Leroux has earned over 75 caps with the senior national team and was part of the Americans' winning squads at the 2012 London Olympics and 2015 Women's World Cup.

Leroux played collegiate soccer in NCAA Division I for UCLA Bruins women's soccer[1] and at the semi-professional level for the Vancouver Whitecaps. She made her debut for the Whitecaps at the age of fifteen, becoming the youngest player ever to play for the team. Leroux was the number one pick by the Atlanta Beat during the 2012 WPS Draft on January 13, 2012. Following the suspension of the league in early 2012, she played for the Seattle Sounders Women during the summer of the same year.

In 2013, she made her professional debut for the Boston Breakers in the NWSL during the league's inaugural season. She was later traded to Seattle Reign FC in 2014, Western New York Flash for the 2015 season and FC Kansas City prior to the 2016 season.

Early life

Leroux was born in Surrey, British Columbia to a Canadian mother, Sandi Leroux, and an African-American father, Ray Chadwick. Her mother played third base for the Canadian national softball team.[2][3] Her father was a professional baseball player who pitched briefly for the California Angels in 1986. Coming from a family of baseball players, Sydney played baseball for Whalley Little League from 1994-2004.[4][5][6] Leroux was raised primarily by her mother after her parents split when her mother was three months pregnant with Sydney.[7][8]

During her freshman and sophomore year of high school, Leroux attended Johnston Heights Secondary School in Surrey where she was the leading scorer on the soccer team. Also a track and field athlete, she won Provincials in the 4 × 100 metres relay with her team.[9] Leroux played three seasons of club soccer with Coquitlam City Wild, helping the team to Provincial Cup Championships in 2003, 2004 and 2005. Leroux's prolific goalscoring helped the team win the under-14 national championship in 2003. She secured a bronze medal in helping the team finish third at the under-16 national tournament in 2005.[10][11] Leroux became the youngest player to play for the Vancouver Whitecaps of the W-League at the age of 15. She also won a championship as part of a British Columbia select team at the Canada Games in 2005.[11]

Leroux stated that at a very early age, she knew she wanted to play for the United States women's national soccer team.[5][12] To pursue her goal, she moved to Scottsdale, Arizona at the age of 15 and attended Horizon High School during her junior and senior years while living with multiple host families.[13][14][15] Despite having a challenging time adjusting to life without her family and friends, she helped lead Sereno Soccer Club to state titles in 2007 and 2008.[9][16] Of her move to the United States, she said, "It was not easy. It was probably one of the most difficult things I ever had to do, move away from everything that I knew and was comfortable with to something that I had no idea about. Not having any family around. Doing it on my own. As a 15-year-old, that's kind of hard. I had to grow up really fast [...] But I guess it's all worth it. Now I have a chance to prove myself, and that's what I enjoy, and that's why I did what I did."[13]

College career

Leroux played collegiate soccer for UCLA from 2008 to 2011, under head coaches Jill Ellis (2008-10) and B. J. Snow (2011).[17] During her freshman season, she started 18 of the 19 games in which she played. She was the sixth-highest scorer on the team with five goals and six assists for a total of 16 points on the season, and was named to the All-Freshman Team in the Pacific-10 Conference (Pac-10).[9] During her second year, she led UCLA in scoring with 48 points (23 goals, two assists) and was a semi-finalist for the Hermann Trophy.[9][18] Her 23 goals ranked second in the Pac-10 and tied with teammate Lauren Cheney for a new single-season record at UCLA. Leroux earned Soccer America MVP second team, Second-team All-Pac-10, and 2009 NCAA All-Tournament Team honors the same year.[9] During the first round of the NCAA Division I Women's Soccer Tournament, she tied the school's record for most goals scored in a single match after scoring four during the team's 7-1 defeat of Boise State.[19]

"She's the most competitive person I've worked with, mentally and physically. She's been through a lot. When it's harder for her is when she's better."

-- Jill Ellis[5]

As a junior, Leroux ranked fifth in UCLA history for career points (91) as well as fourth in goals (41) and game-winning goals (15).[9] She ranked third in the Pac-10 for goals (13) and second in game-winning goals (6) earning her First-team Soccer America MVP, Third-team NSCAA All-American, First-team NSCAA All-Pacific Region, and First-team All-Pac-10 honors the same year.[9][15] During the Bruins' first game of her junior season in 2010, she scored four goals against Cal Poly Pomona helping her team win 7-0. She was subsequently named Pac-10 Player of the Week.[20] Leroux scored the game-winning goal during the second round of the 2010 NCAA Tournament helping the Bruins defeat the UCF Knights 2-1 and advance to the third round where they lost to Stanford.[21][22]

During her final year with the Bruins in 2011, she led the team in scoring for the third straight season with 16 goals and three assists for a total of 35 points.[9] She was named First-team NSCAA All-American, Soccer America's MVP First Team, and was a semi-finalist for the Hermann Trophy.[23] She scored eight game-winning goals, more than any other player in the newly renamed Pac-12 Conference.[9] She scored her first hat trick of the season (the third of her collegiate career) in 21 minutes during a 6-1 win over Arizona State in October 2011.[9][24][25] At the Bruins' next game against Colorado, Leroux scored another hat trick helping her team win 8-0.[26] She finished her collegiate career ranked fourth in UCLA's record books for points (126), goals (57), and game-winning goals (23).[9][27]

Club career

Vancouver Whitecaps, 2005 and 2011

Leroux played for the Vancouver Whitecaps during the 2005 W-League season, becoming the youngest player to ever play for the team aged 15 years and seven days. She returned to the Whitecaps for the 2011 season.[28] She ranked second in the league for goals scored with 11 finishing the regular season with 24 points in 11 appearances. After helping the Whitecaps advance to the W-League Championship Final Four with a goal during the team's 4-3 defeat of Santa Clarita Blue Heat in the Western Conference Final,[29] Leroux was named to the All-Western Conference team. Post-season, she was named 2011 W-League Rookie of the Year.[30]

WPS Draft and Seattle Sounders Women, 2012

Leroux was the number one pick by the Atlanta Beat in the 2012 WPS Draft,[31][32] though the league folded before she could play for the team.[33] During the summer of 2012, Leroux joined fellow U.S. national team players, Hope Solo, Alex Morgan, Stephanie Cox, and Megan Rapinoe on the Seattle Sounders Women in the W-League.[34] Sounders Women head coach, Michelle French, said of the signing, "Sydney is the consummate goal scorer with an incredible attacking attitude. She not only shows tireless effort on the offensive side of the ball, but she is very unique in that she prides herself on her defensive recovery and ability to win the ball back. She makes an impact no matter where she plays on the field."[35] Due to her national team commitments and preparation for the 2012 Summer Olympics,[36] Leroux made only two regular season appearances for the club. She scored two goals and served one assist in her 168 minutes on the pitch.[37] With the national teammates' presence on the team,[38][39] the Sounders sold out nine of their ten home matches at the 4,500 capacity Starfire Stadium.[40] Average attendance during the 2012 season for the Sounders Women was four times higher than the next closest team.[40]

Boston Breakers, 2013

Sydney Leroux (Boston Breakers) vs.Washington Spirit

In January 2013, Heather O'Reilly, Heather Mitts and Leroux were the three United States national team players allocated to the Boston Breakers for the inaugural season of the National Women's Soccer League (NWSL).[41] She scored her first goal of the season in the 91st minute of the Breakers' season opener against the Washington Spirit, tying the game 1-1 in stoppage time.[42] Leroux scored the league's first ever hat trick during the Breakers' 4-1 win against the Chicago Red Stars on May 4 and was subsequently named NWSL Player of the Week.[43] On July 3, she scored another equalizer against the Seattle Reign FC, resulting in a 1-1 draw.[44] A few days later on July 6, she scored two goals against the Portland Thorns FC resulting in a 2-0 win for the Breakers in front of 12,436 fans at Jeld-Wen Field.[45]

Leroux's 11 goals scored during the season tied for second with national teammate Abby Wambach of the Western New York Flash. Lauren Holiday of FC Kansas City was in first place with 12.[46] The Breakers finished the 2013 season fifth in the league with an 8-6-8 record.[47]

Seattle Reign FC, 2014

On November 18, 2013, it was announced that Leroux had been traded to the Seattle Reign FC for the 2014 NWSL season in exchange for Kristie Mewis, Michelle Betos and the Reign's first two picks in the 2015 draft. Ebullient Reign FC head coach Laura Harvey hailed the signing of Leroux: "One of the world's best forwards. She is a young, extraordinary talent with unlimited upside. Sydney will be the consistent goal-scoring threat that we struggled to find last season."[48]

During the 2014 season, the Reign set a league record unbeaten streak of 16 games during the first part of the season. During the 16 game stretch, the Reign compiled a 13-0-3 record.[49] The Reign finished first in the regular season clinching the NWSL Shield for the first time.[50] After defeating the Washington Spirit 2-1 in the playoff semi-finals, the Reign were defeated 2-1 by FC Kansas City during the championship final.[51] Leroux finished the 2014 season with five goals in 22 games played.[52] In March 2015, it was announced that she was traded to Western New York Flash.[53]

Western New York Flash, 2015

Due to her participation in the 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup and an ankle injury, Leroux played only three games for the Flash. She scored once in those three games.[54]

FC Kansas City, 2016-2017

On January 13, 2016, Leroux was traded to FC Kansas City.[55] Leroux announced later that month that she was pregnant. Due to her pregnancy, she missed the 2016 NWSL season.[56]

She returned to play for FC Kansas City in 2017. She scored a goal in the first game of the season, a 2-0 win over the Boston Breakers. She played in 23 games for FCKC in 2017, and scored 6 goals. Kansas City finished the season in sixth place and did not qualify for the playoffs. After FCKC ceased operations following the 2017 season, her rights were transferred to the Utah Royals.[57]

Orlando Pride, 2018-present

Leroux received clearance from FIFA to change her allegiance to the United States in 2008 and went on to help the under-20 national team win the 2008 FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup in Santiago, Chile. She scored in the first half of the final against North Korea.[11][63] She represented the United States at the 2010 FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup and ended her under-20 career as the country's all-time leading scorer in Under-20 Women's World Cup play with 10 goals.[64] At the under-20 level, she is among the country's most capped players with 36 games and is the all-time leading scorer for the U.S. with 30 goals.[9] In 2012, she was named the 2011 U.S. Soccer Young Female Athlete of the Year, playing for both the senior and under-23 national teams.[64]

In 2012, Leroux set a new team scoring record as a reserve on the team with 12 goals scored off the bench in one year.[71] The previous record of nine goals was set by Debbie Keller in 1998.[72]

While playing in a sold-out friendly match against Canada at BMO Field in Toronto, Ontario in June 2013, Leroux was booed by Canadian fans throughout the match. After scoring during stoppage time to bring the score to 3-0 in favor of the U.S., Leroux celebrated her goal by hushing the crowd and pointing to the U.S. emblem on her jersey which further inflamed many fans in the crowd.[82] After the game, she stated via Twitter, "When you chant racial slurs, taunt me and talk about my family don't be mad when I shush you and show pride in what I represent. #america."[83] The U.S. Soccer Federation announced that Leroux had "endured abuse both verbally and in social media" since switching to the U.S. national soccer team in 2008; however, Leroux later clarified that no such incidents took place at BMO Field.[84] "My tweet from this morning wasn't in response to anything from yesterday's match at BMO Field. In fact, the atmosphere at the stadium was a positive step forward for women's soccer. Unfortunately, the type of abuse I have received in the past and via social media for my decision to play for the United States is a step backwards. That is what prompted my response in the heat of the moment."[84]

During a friendly against Mexico in September 2013, Leroux scored a hat trick in nine minutes, helping the U.S. win 7-0.[85][86]

2015 FIFA Women's World Cup

Post World Cup-present

On July 17, 2015, it was announced that Leroux would undergo ankle surgery, which would sideline her for three months. As a result she would miss the remainder of the 2015 NWSL Season and the U.S. WNT World Cup Victory Tour.[89]

Leroux announced her pregnancy on January 26, 2016; as a result, she did not play in 2016.[90]

On May 27, 2017 Leroux was named to the U.S. Roster for a set of friendlies in Scandinavia. This was her first time suiting up for the U.S. since giving birth to her son. Leroux did not play in either game.[91] Leroux was named to the roster for the 2017 Tournament of Nations. She didn't play in the first match for the U.S., but entered as a second half substitute in their second match against Brazil. This was her first appearance for the U.S. since the semi-final of the 2015 World Cup, on June 30, 2015.[92]

Leroux has not received a call-up since the 2017 Tournament of Nations, and she was not listed on the 35 player previsional roster for the 2018 CONCACAF Women's Championship.[93]
