Rodrigo Schlegel

Age: 24

Prior Years w/ Orlando City: 2

Rodrigo Schlegel will never be forgotten by Orlando City fans. He is an immortal figure at the club for the 2020 MLS Cup Playoffs. His penalty save and ensuing celebration is legitimately one of the best moments in modern MLS history. Aside from those postseason heroics, Schlegel has become a very reliable center back. When one of Jansson or Antonio Carlos is unavailable, Schlegel is a fantastic substitute who keeps the backline at a high level. He's under contract through the rest of this season, and I'm not sure what the club will do. He's still relatively young and just entering his peak years and could be a key cog in the next era of Orlando City.
