Season Review

2019 Rapids Report Card: Deklan Wynne

ROLE Utility Defender
KEY 2019 STATS 917 min, 1.2 tackles/90, 4.2 clearances/90

Season in a Sentence

Deklan Wynne occasionally saw the field at left and central defense before succumbing to a season-ending injury right as Colorado started to turn things around.

Performance Review

Along with Dillon Serna, Wynne fought for the left fullback position before Sam Vines secured the role for good. That said, most of Wynne’s 2019 minutes were spent putting up decidedly average numbers in central defense. Wynne unfortunately sustained an injury in Colorado’s 3-1 win over F.C. Cincinnati that forced him out of the lineup for the rest of the year.

Future Expectations

Wynne’s contract was extended for 2020 and it’s not hard to see why. Though the New Zealand International hasn’t been a standout in any role, Wynne is experienced in every position on the back line and his deal doesn’t have an impact on the salary cap. There’s still an opportunity for Wynne to prove his worth should he be called upon in the coming year.
