The National Soccer Hall of Fame (NSHOF) announced today that former Colorado Rapids player Tim Howard was named to the National Soccer Hall of Fame Class of 2024. Howard was elected in his first year of eligibility.
Howard played for the Rapids as a goalkeeper from 2016 to 201, starting and playing 100 games in the Burgundy & Blue. He was named to the Rapids' All-Time Best XI in 2020 by the fans, who will forever remember his all-time rankings in the Rapids' record books for second in total saves with 330 and fourth in shutouts, as well as his performance in the 2016 Western Conference Final where he recorded two saves during a shootout with LA Galaxy.
His legacy with US Soccer as a whole cannot be understated as he earned 121 caps over his international career, the most of any goalkeeper to date, and will go down in history for his record-setting 16 saves against Belgium in the 2014 FIFA World Cup.
