Talmon Henry "Tally" Hall (born May 12, 1985) is an American professional soccer player who plays for Orlando City in Major League Soccer as a goalkeeper.

College[edit]

Born in SeaTac, Washington, Hall attended Gig Harbor High School, and was a star for the San Diego State University Aztecs, where he was a two-time NSCAA and College Soccer News All-American, a semi-finalist for the M.A.C. Hermann Trophy, and a first-team all-Pacific-10 Conference honoree for two straight years.[1] During his college years, Hall also played with Boulder Rapids Reserve in the USL Premier Development League.

Club[edit]

Denmark[edit]

Although Hall was drafted by Los Angeles Galaxy in the 2007 MLS SuperDraft,[2] Hall signed with Danish club Esbjerg instead.[3] Hall spent two years in Denmark without making a senior competitive start.

Major League Soccer[edit]

Hall returned to the United States in early 2009, and signed with Houston Dynamo. He made his first start for Dynamo on July 1, 2009, in a Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup third round game against USL First Division side Austin Aztex, which Houston won 2-0. Hall also played in Houston's 4-0 quarterfinal win over the Charleston Battery.

Hall made headlines when he became the second goalkeeper in MLS history to score a goal in a 2009–10 CONCACAF Champions League game against Isidro Metapán on October 23, 2009.[4] He made his MLS debut against DC United and earned a shutout.

Hall was named to the 2011 MLS All Star team and started in the All Star Game against Manchester United. In 2012, Hall set a Dynamo record with regular-season shutouts.[5] Hall was again an MLS All Star in 2013.

On October 28, 2014, it was announced that Hall was traded to new MLS franchise Orlando City SC.[6]

International[edit]

Hall trained with the United States U-23 men's national soccer team[3][7][8] but did not see any game action. He was called up to the full United States national team for the internationals against Belgium and Germany in May/June 2013, but did not play.
