Peer vote selects Eastern Conference's best 11 players this season

Selections for the 2019 USL League Two Eastern Conference Team of the Season were determined by peer voting. Each League Two club submitted a ballot for multiple players at each position, and the players receiving the most votes were named to the Team of the Season.

Blake Mullen - Goalkeeper - Western Mass Pioneers

Mullen was the anchor of an elite Pioneers defense that went undefeated and allowed only seven goals during the regular season on its way to a first-place finish in the Northeast Division.

Lamine Conte - Defender - Reading United AC

The center back out of Louisville had a lights-out season as the linchpin of a Reading defense that won the Eastern Conference for the second consecutive season.

Gideon Betz - Defender - Lionsbridge FC

A native of Schlüchtern, Germany, Betz was a standout on the Lionsbridge backline.

Friedrich Peter - Defender - Virginia Beach United

Another German rounds out the Eastern Conference defense. Peter was a reliable fixture at the back for Virginia Beach United in the club’s inaugural season.

Felipe Hideki - Midfielder - Reading United AC

Hideki notched seven goals during the regular season, and scored the decisive penalty in Reading’s 3-2 comeback win over South Georgia Tormenta FC 2 in the League Two semi-final.

Jack Beer - Midfielder - Manhattan SC

Beer made Manhattan tick this season, logging over 1,000 minutes in the middle of the park and running the show with his passing ability. He recorded four goals and seven assists on the year.

Manuel Ferriol - Midfielder - Long Island Rough Riders

Ferriol was a key cog in the Rough Riders midfield, scoring five goals and assisting on four more for a Long Island side that lost just once in League Two all season.

Taylor Gray - Midfielder - Tri-Cities Otters

A versatile player who thrives in attack, Gray was the Otters main man this year. He appeared in every regular season match, and led the team in goals (seven) and shots (32).

Deri Corfe - Forward - Ocean City Nor’easters

Corfe was a nightmare for opposing defenses, dominating with his precise finishing ability. The Chester, England native finished tied atop the League Two scoring charts with 14 goals in just 12 games, and added three assists as well.

Donnett Sackie - Forward - Virginia Beach United

The Liberian striker was difficult to contain this year, leading Virginia Beach in scoring during the team’s charge for the playoffs in a competitive South Atlantic Division.

Thibaut Jacquel - Forward - Lionsbridge FC

Jacquel was the focal point of a Lionsbridge attack that entertained big crowds in Newport News all season, bagging seven goals on the year.
