Goalkeeper of the Year: Tyler Deric (62%)
Tyler Deric started the season backing up Tally Hall but after Hall's season was ended by a torn ACL the former Dynamo Academy product found himself with the starting gig. Deric's presence in goal made a huge impact as he made save after save even finding himself up for Save of the Week on multiple occasions. With a strong presence in goal he also took command of the backline helping to sort out the defense. Deric is now the number one goalkeeper in Houston and looks to be the Dynamo keeper for the future.
Dynamo Theory Staff Vote: Tyler Deric (100%)
"Props for stepping in and making the most of it"
"I'd probably say a tie between Hall and Deric. Both are good goalies. The only reason I wouldn't pick Hall is his 0% save rate on penalties and his inability to get down quick enough. Both things Deric has a slight edge in."
"Legend though Deric only played a few games I think he showed everyone why Hall was found to be dispensable"
"Though Tally player 2/3 of the season, Tally had a down season before his injury, Tyler finally got a good set of games & showed really well in his 1/3 of the season that he played."
