Aztex forward Kris Tyrpak was voted the fan favorite last week, edging out team captain Lance Rozeboom and fellow local Austinite Devin Perales on the vote.
Tyrpak will now represent the Aztex in USL’s 24-player bracket to determine the overall Fan-Favorite player in 2015. Tyrpak earned a first round bye in the voting process, and will automatically advance to the second round where he will face off versus either Seattle Sounders 2’s own Jiuliano Frano or Chris Serban of Vancouver Whitecaps 2.
Tyrpak finished the 2015 season with the team lead at 20 points and tied with Trevin Caesar with nine goals apiece.
Each USL club ran a fan poll on its website and social media channels to determine that club’s fan-favorite players. The 24 players selected now face off in a national bracket to determine the overall Fan-Favorite Player in 2015. (Players who received first-round byes face off against themselves in the first round and automatically advance.)
