Jason Kreis again up for Hall of Fame honors

Otto Greule Jr

Real Salt Lake coach Jason Kreis is again up for a spot in the National Soccer Hall of Fame.

Real Salt Lake coach and former player Jason Kreis is up for a spot in the National Soccer Hall of Fame in 2013, U.S. Soccer announced today.

Kreis, who last played in MLS in 2007, is on the ballot for 2013 voting. He's eligible for the ballot as he's been retired for more than three years but fewer than 10, and because he played in at least five seasons in a first-division American league — in his case, MLS.

Kreis first appeared on the ballot when eligible in 2011 but was not among the top vote-getters that year. In 2012, he appeared on approximately 30 percent of ballots, well short of the 66 percent needed for election into the Hall of Fame.

The voting pool consists of past and present men's and women's national team coaches, active MLS and NWSL coaches with at least four years of experience, MLS and NWSL management representatives, MLS commissioner Don Garber, the NWSL executive director, all past hall-of-fame honorees, and others.

Voting takes place until Feb. 22, and results will be announced shortly thereafter.

Former Real Salt Lake defender Eddie Pope was voted into the Hall of Fame in 2011.
