A native of Nacogdoches, Texas Clint Dempsey spent his youth career with the Dallas Texans before joining Furman University's Men's Soccer team in 2001.
During his professional career, he played in the Premier League for Fulham and Tottenham Hotspur and in Major League Soccer for New England Revolution and Seattle Sounders FC. ESPN, FOX Sports, and NBC Sports networks have each ranked Dempsey as the greatest men's American soccer player in history. In 2004, Dempsey was drafted by the New England Revolution, where he scored 25 goals in 71 appearances. Between 2007 and 2012, Dempsey played for Fulham in the Premier League, eventually becoming the club's leading Premier League goalscorer. Dempsey also became the first American player to score a hat-trick in the Premier League during a 5–2 win against Newcastle United in 2012.
In 2012, Tottenham signed Dempsey for a fee of $9.6 million, a-then record signing for an American. Dempsey scored 12 goals in one season with Tottenham, giving him 72 goals across all competitions for Premier League clubs—the most by an American in a top-tier European league. He announced his retirement from soccer on August 29, 2018. View Our Work With Clint Here
