Highlight of the Year: Burch did not play a whole lot in 2015, so highlights are few and far between.

Lowlight of the Year: There are reasons why Burch only made eight appearances in 2015, and he certainly looked slow and out of place at times.  He was not a player that the Rapids could depend on and there were reasons why the Rapids made upgrades along the backline with Sean St. Ledger and Maynor Figueroa.

2015 Grade (C): It is clear that the Rapids do not fancy Burch all that much and he did not take the pitch for the bulk of the second half.

2016 Outlook: Burch coming back next year will depend on whether the Rapids want him back and whether Burch will accept a role as a squad player and not necessarily a starter.
