HOW ACQUIRED: Seitz joined FC Dallas in a trade with the Seattle Sounders on Dec. 15, 2010.
A veteran MLS goalkeeper with a strong track record from stints at Real Salt Lake, Philadelphia Union and FCD, Seitz has spent much of his time in Dallas as a backup, first to Kevin Hartman, then to rising young star Jesse Gonzalez. Enjoyed his best pro season in 2014, finishing with an 8-4-4 record, including two clean sheets and a third in a 0-0 draw with Seattle Sounders FC in the MLS Cup Playoffs.. Seitz decided to cut short his 2012 campaign in order to donate bone marrow and was voted 2012 MLS W.O.R.K.S. Humanitarian of the Year for his selfless act. Helped lead the University of Maryland to an NCAA national championship as a freshman starter in 2005; left College Park after two seasons with a 28-5-3 record, 0.77 GAA and 16 shutouts. Seitz and his wife Kate Kavchok welcomed their first child, Deklin Rose Seitz, on 3/26/13.
