Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Kosuke Kimura (born May 14, 1984 in Kobe) is a Japanese footballer who currently plays for the Colorado Rapids of Major League Soccer. He is the only player in the league's history who was born in Japan, and was a starting defender for the Rapids in its run to the MLS Cup Championship in 2010. Kimura's career in organized soccer began with the youth team of J. League side Kawasaki Frontale. A broken foot at age 15 prematurely ended his time with the club. Despite this, he would eventually earn an athletic scholarship to play college soccer at Western Illinois University after moving to the United States, where he took an intensive English-language course and the SAT, which he achieved a near-perfect score on its mathematics section. A four-year letterman with the Leathernecks from 2003 to 2006, he also played with the Thunder Bay Chill of the USL Premier Development League.
