Houston Dynamo re-sign defender Dylan Remick

The Houston Dynamo have re-signed defender Dylan Remick, the club announced today.

Remick, 26, joined the Dynamo last year after being chosen in the First Round of the 2016 MLS Re-Entry Draft. In his first season with the club, Remick appeared in 14 games with 13 starts and scored his first career goal. The goal came in a 4-1 win against the New York Red Bulls on April 1 on a powerful header to equalize the match just two minutes after Houston fell behind 1-0. The defender also started two games in the in the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup and scored one goal against North Carolina F.C. on June 15.

“Dylan has been a very good addition to our club since joining the Houston Dynamo last year,” said Dynamo Vice President and General Manager Matt Jordan. “He played a big part in the team’s success last season, and at just 26 years old, he’s entering the prime of his career and is eager to achieve even more, both personally and for the team. He’s a top professional both on and off the field which is vitally important as we build towards the 2018 season.”

Remick helped secure Houston’s seventh trip to a Conference Championship in 12 years. In his playoff debut at Portland on November 5, the naturally left-footed player scored on a right-footed side volley off of a set piece. The Dynamo trailed Portland 1-0 on aggregate at the time, and Remick’s blast put Houston over the Timbers on away goals to advance the Conference Championship.

“Dylan Remick is a player that has been growing and developing. He has gained the respect of his teammates and opponents, and he has worked hard to earn that respect. Since he arrived to the club, he has been competing to earn a starting role in the team,” said Head Coach Wilmer Cabrera. “He is a strong competitor and a very good professional, and he continues to grow. Every time he plays, he brings his character and his personality with a high level of competition to the game.”

The Inverness, Ill. native began his professional career when the Seattle Sounders chose him in the second round of the 2013 MLS SuperDraft. Remick played in Seattle from 2013-2016, seeing action in 44 games with 32 starts, and was a part of Seattle’s MLS Cup winning side in 2016.

With the addition of Remick, the Dynamo now have 19 players under contract for the 2018 season.
