For the third time in five seasons, Bobby Boswell was voted the Houston Dynamo Defender of the Year but the media. Boswell helped the Dynamo record 12 shutouts while playing in 33 regular season games, a high for Dynamo field players. The veteran center back helped stabilize a backline that saw the transfer of U.S. men's national team center back Geoff Cameron to Stoke City in the summer. Although Boswell has been a rock for Houston all season, he will be most remembered for this play against D.C. United:
It's been a breakout season for Will Bruin. The second year striker from Indiana University scored 12 goals in the regular season and has added four more in the MLS Cup Playoffs.

Bruin took home the Budweiser Golden Boot after leading the team in goals during the regular season. He won the MLS W.O.R.K.S. Humanitarian of the Year award for his work with the Bald is Beautiful campaign and capped the night with the Houston Dynamo Young Player of the Year award.
