A multi-talented athlete in his youth, Dwayne De Rosario made a career for himself out of the fancy footwork he developed while playing soccer with the Malvern Magic.


After attending Winston Churchill Collegiate, he began his professional soccer career at age 18 with the Toronto Lynx, later making the move to play in Germany part-way through his first season. After honing his game for two years in Germany, De Rosario moved back to Canada for a brief but impressive stint with the Richmond Kickers, before signing with the San Jose Earthquakes in 2001. It didn't take long before De Rosario was turning heads in the big leagues, earning himself the designation of MLS Cup MVP in his rookie season, Canadian Soccer Association Player of the Year from 2005 to 2007 and a professional record of 51 goals and 42 assists in 186 MLS games. 


De Rosario is regarded as one of the league's top talents and has recently signed with the Toronto FC for the next four seasons. Despite his skill and dedication to the game, soccer isn't his only passion. De Rosario is happy to take time from his busy schedule to help support charity.  In 2007, he travelled to the African nation of Mali to build awareness for Nothing but Nets, a charity that raises funds to provide mosquito nets and prevent malaria.  Once again living in Toronto, De Rosario is a talented athlete, activist and family man.
