2016: For the first time in his five-year MLS career, Rowe recorded double digits appearances and starts in one season. In fact, Rowe’s 30 starts in net was more than double the starts he recorded in his four years as an MLS goalkeeper before the 2016 season. Working behind one of the league’s best defenses, Rowe finished with the highest saves percentage in MLS (76.4%), third in shutouts (9), fifth in wins (12), third in saves (113) and fourth in GAA (1.07). He was awarded with MLS Save of the Week in Week 2.
2015: Rowe made 14 starts across all competitions for Galaxy (7 MLS, 4 CONCACAF Champions League, 3 U.S. Open Cup). It was a career high for Rowe who also turned in the best record amongst LA Galaxy goalkeepers across all competitions.
2014: Rowe filled in for goalkeeper Jaime Penedo, who was with Panama on international duty, and went undefeated in three starts while recording 13 saves. He also contributed to Galaxy II in USL PRO, playing in five matches during Los Dos’ inaugural season.
2013: Earned his first MLS appearance on April 27 against Real Salt Lake and recorded seven saves in a 0-0 draw at Rio Tinto Stadium. Started in four total matches, making 14 saves and earning two shutouts.
2012: Rowe was selected by Chivas USA in the second round of the 2012 MLS Supplemental Draft and later signed a contact as an MLS League Pool goalkeeper. He briefly trained with the Galaxy in early-May, serving as the backup goalkeeper for the 2-0 loss at Seattle on May 2 and the 1-0 loss at home to New York three days later, as well as the 1-1 draw with San Jose in the Reserve League. In addition to his time with the Galaxy, Rowe also appeared in a pair of Reserve League games for the Portland Timbers, helping them to road wins over Seattle and Vancouver while keeping a clean sheet in each game.
He spent four seasons at UCLA, starting all 44 games that the club played during the 2010 and 2011 seasons, keeping 20 clean sheets in that time. A native of Eugene, Ore., Rowe finished his UCLA career with a 37-8-5 record, a 0.91 goals against average and 21 shutouts as the Bruins reached the quarterfinals of the NCAA Tournament in each of the past three seasons.
