For nearly two years, Tyler Deric has come to Houston Dynamo practice knowing full well that as the team’s third goalkeeper, the likelihood of getting playing time was small at best. But Deric came to practice each day, put in a solid effort, and slowly began to improve. On Saturday, his hard work paid off as he earned his first start.

With only one game left in the Dynamo's penultimate season in Robertson Stadium, the Dynamo are partnering with the greater East End community to bring out residents and business owners to Saturday's match against the Seattle Sounders. Those in attendance will have the opportunity to hear from Dynamo head coach Dominic Kinnear and Chief Operating Officer Chris Canetti about the Dynamo's new stadium project and the impact the development will have on their community.

The lower bowl at Robertson Stadium is sold out, and less than 5,000 tickets
remain for the Houston Dynamo’s Fan Appreciation Day against the Seattle
Sounders on Saturday, the club announced today.

Houston will host Seattle at 3 p.m. Saturday
afternoon in the Dynamo’s final home game of the 2010 season, presented by Amigo
Energy. The clubs built a fierce rivalry with five meetings last year, including
the Dynamo’s dramatic 1-0 overtime triumph in the Western Conference semifinals
on November 8, 2009.

There was a new face in a Dynamo uniform during Monday’s practice in the form of trialist Yordany Álvarez, who will be training with Houston for the week.

Álvarez was one of the members of the Cuban U-23 national team that defected during the 2008 CONCACAF Olympic qualifying tournament in Tampa, Fla. After defecting, he had a trial with the LA Galaxy, but they opted not to sign him. Álvarez later caught on with the second-division Austin Aztex, and it was with them that Álvarez caught the eye of the Dynamo coaching staff.

Houston native Tyler Deric, from Klein High School in the Houston area, joined the Dynamo Academy as a high school senior in 2007 and has since transitioned to the professional ranks as the first home-grown player in team history. On Saturday, he made his MLS debut and became the first home-grown player to start a match for the Dynamo. He proceeded to record a shutout in a 1-0 win. This photo gallery presents a look back at Deric's journey from Day 1 with the Dynamo to his most recent milestone:
