Danny Barrera joined Hartford Athletic in June, three months after the season started. Barrera, who is the all-time assists leader for USL Championship side Sacramento Republic FC, showed a passing ability that was missing from the Athletic offensive attack in the first third of the season. He finished the season first on the club in Key Passes and Chances Created (44 each), tied for first in assists (4), second in long pass accuracy (69.5%) and tied for fifth in passing accuracy (84%). He also pitched in three goals, all coming at Dillon Stadium in the final three months of the season. Barrera will once again be expected to be the distributor in the Athletic offensive attack in 2020.
