Gonzalez, who is in the midst of his first year as Vancouver's eMLS representative, grew up in Guadalajara, Mexico. At age 12 he moved to Vancouver, British Columbia before later landing in Regina, Saskatchewan. As a soccer player with FC Regina, he spent time playing in the Whitecaps FC BMO Saskatchewan Academy Centre.
Gonzalez made a run to the semifinals in his first official eMLS competition earlier this year and is ranked fourth in the league heading into eMLS Cup, one spot behind Holly from NYCFC.
At 18 years old, Gonzalez is the second youngest player in the competition.
