Bobby Rhine: 1976–2011

As you’ve probably heard, former MLS attacker Bobby Rhine passed away on Monday night, suffering a heart attack at age 35.

Rhine was a consistent and underrated player in his day, and went on to become one of the most beloved members of the FC Dallas organization in his post-playing career. He worked in the Hoops’ front office, and, along with broadcast partner Steve Jolley, formed one of the better local-broadcast teams in all of MLS.

Rhine is survived by his wife, Bevan, and two children.
