Is San Jose Earthquakes forward Adam Jahn an early favorite for the 2013 MLS Rookie of the Year?
It’s early in the Major League Soccer season, but the Stanford product already has four goals in only nine appearances in his first season in the U.S. top flight. With forward Steven Lenhart and Alan Gordon in and out of the lineup due to suspension and injuries, Jahn has filled in admirably for last season’s Supporters’ Shield winners.
The 91st Minute briefly caught up with the youngster to discuss what it’s been like making the jump from college to pro soccer.
Q: What’s the adjustment to the professional level been like?
Adam Jahn: It’s obviously a lot faster and different but I feel like I was able to jump right in because all my teammates and coaching staff made the environment very easy to jump into. Practices are very high level and everyone offers good advice to the young guys so it wasn’t really too big of a jump in.
