John Tyler Deric (born August 30, 1988) is an American soccer player who currently plays for Houston Dynamo of Major League Soccer.


High School & College[edit]

Deric is a graduate of Klein High School in Spring, Texas. Klein Bearkats won the UIL 5A state championship in 2005 and Deric was named to the All-Tournament team as a high school sophomore. He also earned the Atlantic Coast Conference All-Freshman Honors while playing for the University of North Carolina.


Deric became the first home grown player to be promoted from the Dynamo's developmental academy (and the second ever to do so in MLS after Tristan Bowen of Los Angeles Galaxy) when he signed a professional development contract with Houston on February 27, 2009. He made his professional debut on October 16, 2010 away to the San Jose Earthquakes, earning the shutout in a 1–0 victory.

Deric was loaned to NASL club San Antonio Scorpions on August 4, 2012 for their game against Puerto Rico Islanders.[1]

From 2011-13, Deric played only one league game but made four appearances in the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup, with one shutout, and played six games in the CONCACAF Champions League, going 3-1-2 with two shutouts. In competitive games, his career record is 6-5-2 with four shutouts and a 0.90 goals-against-average.[2]
