Goalkeeper of the Year – Ronnie Pascale (Richmond Kickers)
Pascale backstopped the Kickers to a second place regular season finish and ended the campaign atop two of the three key goalkeeping categories. With a 0.900 goals against average, Pascale was just edged out of the GAA Championship by Harrisburg’s Chase Harrison (0.812), but led the league in wins (11) and tied with Harrison for most shutouts with eight.

The longtime Kickers veteran collects the award for the second time, last winning in 2006 while leading the side to that season’s USL Second Division Championship.
