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  spent much of his time in Dallas as a backup, first to Kevin Hartman, then to rising young star Jesse Gonzalez, before taking the starting spot from Gonzalez in 2016. That would prove to be his best year, as he started a career-best 28 games, posting a 1.04 goals against average to help Dallas to a Supporters' Shield and Open Cup double. He is expected to begin 2017 as the starter.

INTERNATIONAL: Took part in full US national team camps in 2007 and 2008. Named to the US Olympic Team’s 18-man roster for the 2008 Beijing Olympics, where he served as back-up to Brad Guzan, who was one of three “overage” players on the US roster.

COLLEGE: 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.

NOTES: Seitz was the fourth overall pick by Real Salt Lake in the 2007 MLS SuperDraft. Hedecided 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. Seitz and his wife Kate Kavchok welcomed their first child, Deklin Rose Seitz, on March 26, 2013.
