One of three three-time All-America selections in Duke men’s soccer history, Jason Kreis helped the Blue Devils to 55 wins from 1991-94. A first team All-America pick in 1993 and 1994, Kreis finished his career with 39 goals and 38 assists and ranks fifth on Duke’s all-time scoring chart with 116 points. A fifth round pick of the Dallas Burn in the inaugural MLS Draft (1996), he went on to become the first player in league history to score 100 goals and, in 1999, was the first American-born player to earn the league’s MVP honor. In addition, Kreis posted the first 15-goal, 15-assist season in league history and was a five-time all-star choice. On May 3, 2007, he was named the head coach of the MLS franchise Real Salt Lake. Kreis also recorded 14 career caps as a member of the United States national team from 1996-99.
