It's no secret that we're big fans of the Dillon Powers Rookie of the Year campaign over here at Burgundy Wave. After all, almost every single one of our staff (Damnit Don!) picked Powers as their favorite of the Rapids rookie movement a few weeks back, and we've been tooting his horn since the first few games of the year. (The readers agreed, with Powers winning the poll on that post 29-7!)
We already know that the majority of the MLSsoccer.com staff had Dillon Powers as their man of the hour, and other folks like WVHooligan also picked Powers as their man. We've got a new addition to the Powers steamtrain now, with SoccerByIves selecting him as their pick of the litter this season:
An argument can be made that the 2013 MLS Rookie class is the strongest in league history, but there was only one player who showed his consistency week in and week out during the course of the season.
Couldn't have said it better myself.
(Yedlin will still win the award because Seattle, and angels will sob.)
