San Jose’s Cannon is All-Star goalkeeper

Went to school at Hemingway

There’s a Ketchum connection in the 2001 Major League Soccer All-Star game Saturday, July 28 at Spartan Stadium in San Jose, Ca.

Joe Cannon, 26, a former All-American goalkeeper at Santa Clara University, will be the starting goalkeeper for the West All-Stars.

Cannon, one of four sons of legendary Sun Valley singer Joe Cannon, went to grade school at Hemingway Elementary School in Ketchum and was a member of the Sun Valley Ski Team while here.

A first-time MLS All-Star, the 6-2, 190-pound Cannon is one of three San Jose Earthquake players in the starting line-up for the game, to be televised Saturday at 1:30 p.m. MDT on ABC Sports local channel 8.

He has been considered one of the elite goalkeepers in MLS since his first season in 1999, when he was 14-10 with a 1.33 goals-against average.

So far this season, Cannon has backstopped San Jose to a Western Division-leading 10-4-5 record including a club-record 12-game unbeaten streak. Nicknamed "The Wall," he has the Earthquakes on track to having their best-season ever.

Cannon is one of 17 Americans in the 22 starting spots of Saturday’s game on the Earthquakes home field.

He comes from an athletic family.

Joe’s twin brother, Jon Cannon, is a left-handed minor league baseball pitcher for the San Francisco Giants’ affiliate in Shreveport, La. Colt Cannon, 19, is a world-ranked skateboarder and Cody Cannon has achieved much in water polo.

Apres-ski singer Joe Cannon, their father, moved back into Ketchum last year after a 10-year absence. Now 60, Cannon first moved to Ketchum in 1968 and started performing at The Ram in Sun Valley in Jan. 1974.

One year later, twins Joe and Jon were born in Mountain View, Ca. They grew up in Ketchum and in Los Altos Hills, Ca. near Palo Alto.
