Luis Garrido, AJ Cochran earn team of the week honors from media outlets

Three Houston Dynamo players were recognized by media outlets for their performance in Saturday's 0-0 road draw against the Philadelphia Union.

Honduras national team midfielder Luis Garrido earned Team of the Week honors from MLSSoccer.com:

“His backtracking and recovery work was excellent all game, helping to thwart the Union attack and collect a point on the road.”

Defender David Horst was named to the bench (next seven best players) at the same outlet for his outstanding performance in his home state, which helped the Dynamo record their eighth shutout of the season.

Rookie AJ Cochran, Horst’s center back partner in Philadelphia, also gained praise for his performance and was named to SI.com’s Best XI for the week. SI writer Liviu Bird described Cochran’s outing:

“In a scoreless draw against Philadelphia, Cochran blocked a whopping five shots for the Dynamo. He also recovered seven loose balls and made three clearances.”
