Dynamo midfielder Brad Davis has been named the MLS W.O.R.K.S. Humanitarian of the Month for August, it was announced today. Davis’ selection is due to his contributions to the Texas Chapter of Paralyzed Veterans of America (TCPVA) through his Brad’s Brigade campaign. MLS W.O.R.K.S. will make a $1,500 donation to the TCPVA on behalf of Davis for his work in the community.

Often the best work is a product of passion. When it comes to Brad’s Brigade, it is just that and more for Brad Davis.

Brad's Brigade is the organization Davis founded in 2006 to help area military veterans, and the reason he has been named  for MLS W.O.R.K.S. Humanitarian of the Month for August.

Houston Dynamo head coach Dominic Kinnear does not often single out individual performances, but after Friday night’s 2-0 win over the New York Red Bulls, the Dynamo boss did just that in regard to defender Corey Ashe, showing support for the speedy left back who looks to be rounding into form.

The opponents keep going down, and the Dynamo keep going up in the Power Rankings. The New York Red Bulls were the latest victims after the 2-0 dismantling at BBVA Compass Stadium on Friday night, with goals from Jermaine Taylor and the red-hot Calen Carr. They'll get another crack at it this Friday at Red Bull Arena, but for now it's a five-game winning streak and eight games unbeaten for the Dynamo as they sit even with Sporting Kansas City at the top of the Eastern Conference with 40 points.

After moving into first place with a decisive 2-0 win over the New York Red Bulls, it is understandable if the Houston Dynamo stop and smell the roses a bit.

However, they don’t have time to rest on their laurels. The return match of this midseason home-and-home series looms this Friday, when Houston will travel to Red Bull Arena to face the same hungry, now second-place NYRB.

For the first time since 2009, Ricardo Clark took part in Houston Dynamo training. And while some things have changed, there is a feeling that his familiarity with the club could make the transition back into MLS a seamless one for the former All-Star and two-time MLS Cup winner.

Both the Dynamo and Clark, who has yet to be added to the roster due to salary cap issues expected to be resolved Wednesday when Geoff Cameron’s British work permit is decided, hope the move has an impact similar to Houston’s most recent signings.

Even in the middle of a great run of form you can find something to work on and for the Houston Dynamo that has been getting off to better starts.
 
If that was a point of focus coming into Friday night’s match with the New York Red Bulls, the Dynamo got the message loud and clear. Jermaine Taylor scored his first goal of the season 72 seconds into the match, the second fastest MLS goal in Dynamo history, and put the visiting New York Red Bulls in an early hole from which they would never emerge.
