Omar Gonzalez of the Los Angeles Galaxy is tough to get past with the soccer ball. The reason is, at 6’5, he is not easy to move past by kicking the ball or using the head or body.

With his toughness in defending, it makes sense that he has been voted the 2011 Major League Soccer Defender of the Year.

The 23-year-old was a 2009 3rd round pick of the Galaxy in the MLS SuperDraft.

Gonzalez has dual citizenship of Mexico and the United States.

Gonzalez received 94.5 of the vote from club officials, media and players groups. Finishing second was Jamison Olave of Real Salt Lake who finished with 50.7.

The percentage totals are from all the votes added together.
