Downingtown West High School graduate Zack Steffen enjoyed a breakout year in 2019 as the goalkeeper for the U.S. Men’s National Soccer Team, according to a report from The Associated Press.

In July, Steffen signed with Manchester City of the English Premier League for a record transfer fee for any Major League Soccer goalkeeper. He was then loaned to Fortuna Düsseldorf of the German Bundesliga, where he earned the starting position.

To top it all off, he is being mentored by his idol, Tim Howard, who is considered to be the greatest goalkeeper in the history of U.S. soccer.

“He was massive for me,” said Steffen. “I mean he’s the one that really showed me that I could go over there, obviously come over to Europe and play.”

Steffen has big plans for the future. He hopes to help the national team achieve great results on home soil at the 2026 World Cup.
