MLS INSIDER: Being Dwyer

Dom Dwyer's story has been well-chronicled.

Sporting Kansas City drafted Dwyer in the first round of the 2012 MLS SuperDraft before loaning him to USL Pro affiliate Orlando City at the start of the 2013 season. Dwyer excelled with Orlando City, broke the League's scoring record in only half a season and scored four goals in the USL Pro championship match. He then broke into Sporting KC's starting XI, scored the game-winning goal in the 2013 Eastern Conference Championship series with the Houston Dynamo and never looked back.

The Major League Soccer Player of the Month for May has 14 goals in 2014, second most in the League, and assisted on Jacob Peterson's game-winning goal against Toronto FC on July 26.

But Dwyer's stats tell only half the story. The British striker is one of the most gregarious players in Major League Soccer, with his selfie goal celebration exemplifying fun-loving personality.

MLS Insider, a collaboration between Major League Soccer and the emmy-award winning Hock Films, took a deep dive into Dwyer's story, to find out how the former Norwich City academy product has blossomed into one of the premier stars in MLS.
