SACRAMENTO, Calif. – Sacramento Republic FC today announced it has signed 2023 USL League One Player of the Year Trevor Amann ahead of the 2024 season. The forward will be added to the club's roster, pending league and federation approval.
“Trevor is coming off one of the greatest offensive seasons in all of USL, and we’re thrilled to have him make the move to the USL Championship with us in 2024,” said Republic FC President and General Manager Todd Dunivant. “His natural instincts in the box will add another goal-scoring threat to our attack.”
The 2023 campaign was a breakout year for Amann. The Westminster, Colo. native first signed with nearby USL League One club Northern Colorado Hailstorm FC ahead of its inaugural 2022 campaign, and in his second professional season, he set a new league record with 23 regular season goals – including seven braces – to earn the league’s Golden Boot award. He also added three assists, with scoring contributions in seven game-winning goals.
His career year was capped off with a selection to the 2023 USL League One All-League First Team and recognition as the League One Player of the Year. In the postseason, he added a hat trick in the Hailstorm’s first-ever playoff match. In two seasons with Northern Colorado, Amann made 63 appearances across all competitions, netting 32 goals and adding eight assists.
Prior to joining the professional ranks, Amann played collegiately at Colorado School of Mines and Midwestern State University, scoring 49 goals and adding 18 assists. He also featured for then-NPSL side Detroit City FC in the 2018 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup and won the 2021 NPSL Championship with Denton Diablos FC, earning the honor of Championship Man of the Match after bagging a brace in the contest.
