Reggae Boy Andre Blake Nominated For MLS Goalkeeper of the Year
Andre Blake set to etch his name in the history books!
Reggae Boy Andre Blake has once again been nominated for the MLS Goalkeeper of the Year award.
And the 2017 CONCACAF Gold Cup Golden Glove winner could very well become the first back-to-back winner of the coveted title in MLS history.
In 2016, Blake posted six shutouts and made 99 saves, several of which made highlight reels. He had a 1.56 goals against average and a 66 percent save percentage.
But those numbers were made to look little by his stats in 2017.
And this is despite starting just 25 games for the Union, a smaller number than in 2016 due to more international call-ups and an injury during the Gold Cup final.
During his 2017 campaign, Blake pulled off a four game shutout streak, the longest of his career and the most consecutive games with a shutout in Union history.
He also went 378 minutes without conceding a goal -the second longest such stretch in Union history.
In 2017 he also had a total of nine shutouts for the Union – a new career-high. His goals against average dropped to a paltry 1.32 and his save percentage increased to 70 percent, with one game remaining.
Blake has also been nominated for save of the week eight times in 2017, which equates to about once every three games.
