Orlando City SC announced on January, 10 that Midfielder Kevin Molino will mark the club’s first-ever Major League Soccer (MLS) signing for the inaugural 2015 season. Molino is guaranteed a spot on Orlando’s 2015 MLS squad, and will also play in the final USL PRO season under Orlando City Head Coach Adrian Heath in 2014.

Molino has been a top-performer for the Lions since the club began operations three years ago. The winger was USL-PRO’s Most Valuable Player (MVP) in 2012. In total, Molino has played over 4,200 regular-season minutes for Orlando, notching 13 assists from 2011-2013. That mark is tied for a franchise-record alongside Midfielder Jamie Watson.

The midfielder has proved himself a vital contributor to Heath’s playing system over the past three years, especially in the final third. The creative-minded Molino has caused headaches for opposing defences throughout his career in the USL PRO, and will be a key component for the Lions in 2014 and 2015.

The 23- year-old Molino began his professional career in his native Trinidad and Tobago. One of a few Lions who’s carried the flag of his country, Molino has represented Trinidad and Tobago in national team play over 20 times, including the Gold Cup and Pan-American Games. During that international span, the winger has notched 10 goals.
