2017 Monarchs Dossier: Max Lachowecki

Second-year Monarch Lachowecki brings a penchant for two-way play as he looks to 2017.

MLS: Preseason-Columbus Crew vs Real Salt Lake Casey Sapio-USA TODAY Sports

Player name: Max Lachowecki

Position: Defender (Left Back)

Last club: University of Notre Dame

One thing you need to know*

Originally drafted by Real Salt Lake in the 2016 MLS Superdraft, Lachowecki has settled in to a key spot in the Real Monarchs squad as he continues to develop his game with eyes on an RSL first team spot.

Max is also a real funny dude, and one of his dreams growing up was to appear on Saturday Night Live.

* Two things again. Sorry.

What he brings to the team

Max isn’t afraid to play deep up the wing and supply service into the box. This shows from his 9 assists throughout his tenure at Notre Dame. This bodes well for incoming target forwards such as Daniel Haber and Chandler Hoffman. Look for Max to settle in to a regular starting spot in 2017.

Why you should be excited

Alongside a solid proficiency on both the defensive and offensive ends, Lachowecki occasionally sports a real banger of a mustache. His gentlemanly lip sweater is glorious to behold - a real sight for sore eyes, if I say so myself. It’s earned him the nickname “Manly” Max Lachowecki, which I just gave him.

Predictions for 2017

  • Max will continue his solid play up the wings, and parlay that into a hot streak of assists. Expect to see him end the season with 7+.
  • The fabled lip upholstery (lipholstery?) will make an appearance, and we will all rejoice accordingly.
  • RSL fans will realize how fun and affordable Monarchs matches are, and fan support will multiple at least ten-fold. Pass it on.
