The Colorado Rapids are enjoying surprising run of success in recent weeks and a major reason for it is a youth movement led by the team’s strong rookie class.
Dillon Powers won consecutive SBI MLS Rookie of the Week honors recently and now teammate Deshorn Brown has kept the streak going for the Rapids after his goal helped Colorado beat Chivas USA. Brown’s overall performance last Saturday, which included him drawing and converting a penalty kick, made him the easy pick for SBI MLS Rookie of the Week.
The No. 5 overall pick in the 2013 MLS SuperDraft recorded seven shots against the Goats before being substituted in the 87th minute.
Brown beat out fellow teammate Dillon Powers, Seattle fullback DeAndre Yedlin, New England fullback Andrew Farrell and Los Angeles Galaxy defender Greg Cochrane for this week’s honor.
What did you think of Brown’s performance vs. Chivas USA? What rookie impressed you in MLS this past weekend?
