University of Maryland alum Maurice Edu was named the MLS Rookie of the Year today, and well deserved. Edu had a pretty good season for a pretty bad team. He's already got one cap with the National Team, and could become a frequent contributor there on the wing.
MLS also named Preki the Coach of the Year today. I know we were all pulling for Tommy Soehn to win, but its hard to argue with Preki getting the award. Preki took a bad team and made them good. All Soehn did was take the #1 team and make them the #1 team again. It's hard to move up when you're already at the top.
