MLS stats: 160 games, 19 goals, 61 assists
All competitions: 184 games, 22 goals, 71 assists

Warzycha will eventually be a double-qualifier, meeting the thresholds as both a player and a coach.

He is the Crew’s all-time leader in both assists (61) and coaching victories (70, tied with Tom Fitzgerald.) Known for his tenacity and crossing ability, Warzycha was nicknamed “The Polish Rifle” due to his free kick-taking prowess. A two-time MLS All-Star and the Crew’s team MVP in 2000, Warzycha was a part of every trophy-winning Crew team to date, spanning three different roles. His final act as a player was to make a goal line clearance in stoppage-time to preserve the Crew’s 1-0 victory over the LA Galaxy in the 2002 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup Final. As an Assistant Coach, he won the 2004 and 2008 Supporters’ Shields, plus the 2008 MLS Cup. Then, in his first full season as Head Coach, he led the Crew to the 2009 Supporters’ Shield.

On June 16, 2001, Washington became the only player in Crew history to participate in five goals in a single game, tallying a hat-trick and a pair of assists in a 6-1 win over Tampa Bay.

#17 MF Brian West (1998-2003)
MLS stats: 132 games, 18 goals, 29 assists
All competitions: 167 games, 21 goals, 35 assists

Perhaps the fastest player in Crew history this side of Dominic Oduro, West spent his entire six-year MLS career with the Crew. West had his best season in 2000, tallying six goals and six assists. He scored a goal and added a career-high eight assists during the 2002 season, which culminated in a Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup title.
