TONIGHT 37 39 DESIGN Leslie Lopez Juan Loya Ricardo Montes EDITORIAL Jonathan Kaplan Matt Pedersen Ben Crook PHOTOGRAPHERS Nigel Brooks Scott DeWoody Luis Leyva Wilf Thorne Anthony Vasser MP One matchup that was fun to watch on July 7 was Dynamo defender Andre Hainault and Sporting KC defender Aurelien Collin who defended each other on corner kicks and set pieces. What are some ways to limit Collin on set pieces DK Well Collin is tough to handle because he is good in the air. One thing you can do is to try and put a body on him to try and put him off it because his timing is very good. You just have to jump with him. I think if you get caught up in a wrestling match he can push and pull his way into open spots so I think it is very important to stay with him and make sure you are always tight. When he s looking to attack the ball you have to be very aggressive with him. MP Dynamo rookie Warren Creavalle came off the bench against Sporting KC on July 7 and played well contributing to preserve the 0-0 draw. What did you think of his performance off the bench DK Warren brought good energy and won a couple of plays in midfield. Those 25 minutes he played were the most important 25 minutes we have had this season. We have confidence in him that he can step on the field and do well for us and he has been doing that.

FAVORITES Movie Face Off TV Show Criminal Minds Book Holes Song Because You Loved Me by Celine Dion Actor Actress John Travolta Julia Roberts MATT PEDERSEN Tonight marks the second meeting with Sporting KC in 11 days after a 0-0 draw on July 7. What positives did you take away from the first match DOMINIC KINNEAR We didn t give up any goals. They had a couple close chances and so did we. We possessed the ball well at times and when you look at the game and you get a shutout away to Kansas City you ve done some things well defensively. MP That makes two consecutive shutouts against Sporting Kansas City with both coming on the road. What are the keys defensively to what your club has done to be successful in that tough environment DK You just have to stay with runners and stay on your feet. On set pieces you have to remain very strong and aggressive because they test you in different ways. They have good guys on the ball guys who can run off the ball as well and are dangerous on set pieces. I think if you approach it very honest and are hard-working you give yourself a chance to do well. Also aggression against their aggressive players is something that you have to have. A JAMAICAN S JOURNEY BY JONATHAN KAPLAN FROM CRICKET FIELDS IN JAMAICA TO SOCCER FIELDS IN HOUSTON JERMAINE TAYLOR IS DETERMINED TO LEAVE HIS MARK ON MLS If you are trying to unravel the mystery that is Jermaine Taylor the first problem you encounter is Where to begin Do you start with the imposing center back who strikes fear in the hearts of opposing strikers the minute he steps on the field Or how about the wide-eyed 20-year-old who captained Jamaica to the Caribbean U-20 title in 2005 Or let s step back further to the 10-year-old boy who would risk beatings from his mother to play soccer with his friends instead of going to church on Sundays. Wherever you choose to begin the story starts and finishes with the game of soccer. But that was not always the case for Taylor. [Soccer] was never something I loved said Taylor. I loved cricket. One day we were on a pitch across from our house playing a cricket game and when the match ended the boys started playing soccer. It was an honor being able to wear the captain s armband No one in Taylor s immediate family had played soccer before. Taylor s father was heavily into dominoes and as a youngster he recalls traveling all over to play dominoes with his father. But once that 10-year-old boy discovered soccer dominoes and cricket could not compare. Taylor played every day with his friends and three younger brothers and shortly after joined his school team. When I was in high school my coach told me that if I kept playing hard I could play for the national team one day said Taylor. I never thought I could get to where I am now but when he told me that I decided to put more thought and effort into it and see where it could take me. An agent had originally recommended him to us Kinnear said. He was strong and good on the ball. We knew he had played for Jamaica a number of times so with his Although Taylor had made a name for himself as one of the preeminent players in the Caribbean it was not until late in 2010 that he caught the eye of Major League Soccer and Houston Dynamo head coach Dominic Kinnear. In the 2010 Caribbean Cup Taylor anchored a Jamaican backline that allowed three goals in 510 minutes of tournament action and defeated Guadeloupe in the championship match in a penalty shootout. he said. It was a great opportunity to work in a leadership role and help my country. It did not take long for Taylor to make his mark on the national team. With Taylor anchoring the defensive line Jamaica won the 2005 Digicel Caribbean Cup. His play earned him time in Gold Cup matches World Cup qualifiers and eventually the opportunity to wear the captain s armband. It was awesome Taylor recalls of his first time suiting up for the Reggae Boyz. It was my first time playing in front of a crowd of 25 000 people. I believe it was against Panama in Jamaica. A couple weeks after that we had World Cup qualifiers and I was in those lineups as well. Where it took him was a contract with Jamaican first division club Harbour View and a spot on the youth and senior national teams. Playing for the national team is a memory that Taylor will not soon forget. experience playing at the international level we knew he would not be put off by anything coming his way. We also had the opportunity to see him play in a friendly against Costa Rica. He did very well against [forward] Bryan Ruiz who currently plays for [English Premier League club] Fulham. After two months of negotiations the Dynamo purchased Taylor s contract from Harbour View. The transition from Jamaica to the U.S. was made easier for Taylor by the presence of former Harbour View teammate and fellow countryman Lovel Palmer who signed with the Dynamo prior to the 2010 season. You always want to be around somebody you are used to and comfortable with Taylor said of Palmer s presence on the Dynamo. You are always going to make friends going to a new team but it s nice to have someone around that you can talk to initially. Coming here and seeing Lovel was a big boost for me. He is a great guy Dynamo captain Brian Ching said. He is definitely one of our better defenders. You knew from the start that he was a competitor that he was going to come in and help us and he has. Although Taylor had played primarily center back and central midfielder in Jamaica with an influx of central defenders on the Dynamo roster Kinnear opted to try his hulking center back on the flanks late in 2011 and again in the early portion of 2012. It was difficult Taylor said of the transition to outside back. I always tell myself Wherever the coach wants me to play I ll play. This was my first time playing left back and right back and sometimes playing both positions in one game. It s hard but I told myself I was ready to take on the challenge and fill that role and so far I think I m doing well. Most recently however with the Dynamo moving to a 4-3-3 formation Taylor has found himself back in a comfortable role in the center of the defense. I enjoy playing center back because it s my natural position When I m in Houston I like to cook a lot the five-foot-ten center back said with a smile. Je-Vaughn isn t a big fan of cooking. He loves to eat more than he loves to cook so when we are home I do the cheffing and he does the eating. While Taylor serves as a valuable member of the team off the field helping to keep his Jamaican teammate nourished he has also When I came here last year I was just trying to get used to the transition and the speed of the game in the States. I think I m there now and I just need to keep focused and do my thing. Taylor said. It s where I m most comfortable playing. I like to be in front of my goalkeeper and I never liked to get scored on. proven his worth on the field. In the past two seasons Taylor has played in 27 games and has tallied two assists. For a man who prides himself on being a professional it did not take long for Taylor to endear himself to his teammates. fan of cooking. He loves to eat more than he loves to cook so when we are home I do the cheffing and he does the eating. -- JERMAINE TAYLOR Mid-way through the 2011 season the Jamaican pair was joined by a third countryman midfielder Je-Vaughn Watson. Although Palmer is no longer with the squad Taylor and Watson remain close friends and share an apartment in Houston.
