Burgundy Wave Player Grades
Player: Sean St. Ledger
|Games Played||Games Started||Minutes||Goals||Assists||Shots||Shots on Goal||GWG||Goals Per 90 Min|
Highlight of the Year: St. Ledger actually had a pretty good year for the Rapids and, for me, the highlight was his assist on the game winning goal against Houston in August at Dick's Sporting Goods Park.
Lowlight of the Year: I know that people have disagreed with me, but the Rapids were statistically worse after St. Ledger arrived from Orlando. You can argue that it was because of the midfield this or that, but at the end of the day--the Rapids were worse (statistically) since his arrival.
Grade (B-): Overall, I liked the play of St. Ledger and he was a good player for the Rapids. He was great in closing players down and had good field presence. The only reason that he is not graded higher is that the Rapids did leak more goals since his arrival.
2016 Outlook: St. Ledger should be a sure fire starter at center back for the Rapids next season and he has all the potential in the world to be one of the better defenders in MLS.
