Tim Howard will go down in American soccer history as one of the country’s all-time greats and he’s made an impact on his teammates, supporters and the community wherever he’s gone. From the New York/New Jersey MetroStars, to the Premier League with Manchester United and Everton. Fans across the globe will remember his heroics with the US men’s national team and Denver soccer supporters will never forget his iconic penalty save in 2016 against the Galaxy.
Howard’s career is one that exemplifies hard work, determination, dedication and talent.
