Sapong scored five goals and dished out five assists for Kansas City in 2011, leading all rookies in points, and appeared in all 34 regular-season matches for manager Peter Vermes, the only Sporting player to do so. He also scored in the club’s Eastern Conference Semifinal against the Colorado Rapids.

Galaxy's Arena named MLS Coach of the Year
LA manager wins record 3rd award after dominant 2011 season



NEW YORK – There's no one greater than Bruce Arena as far as MLS managers go and he has the silverware to back it up.

MLS announced on Monday that Arena was voted the 2011 MLS Coach of the Year, giving him the honor of being the first person to win the award three times (1997, 2009, 2011) with his first one coming 14 years ago. Seattle Sounders manager Sigi Schmid finished second while Sporting Kansas City’s Peter Vermes came in third.

MLS announced on Tuesday that Keller was voted the 2011 Allstate MLS Goalkeeper of the Year. The 41-year-old, who retired following Seattle’s two-leg defeat to Real Salt Lake in the MLS Cup Playoffs, finished comfortably ahead of the Philadelphia Union’s Faryd Mondragon and FC Dallas netminder Kevin Hartman.

Re: MLS reveals finalists for MVP

Seattle's Rosales named Newcomer of the Year
Sounders MF's standout season overshadows Rodgers, Hassli



NEW YORK – Injuries may have disrupted Mauro Rosales’ MLS Cup quest, but they didn’t keep the Argentine winger from being the second Sounder honored in quick succession.

MLS announced on Tuesday that Rosales was voted the 2011 MLS Newcomer of the Year, finishing ahead of fellow finalists Luke Rodgers (New York Red Bulls) and Eric Hassli (Vancouver Whitecaps). Rosales, who signed with the Sounders in March after leaving River Plate in Argentina, scored five goals and distributed 13 assists in just 22 starts (26 appearances) this season.

Re: MLS reveals finalists for MVP

Darlington's Dazzler

Portland rookie's juggling-act volley tops Hassli's bomb


Portland's Darlington Nagbe came into MLS with a bigger reputation as a creator than a goal-scorer. But the lasting image from the Liberian's rookie campaign turned out to be a juggling wonder-strike for the ages, good enough to claim the title of the 20111 AT&T Goal of the Year.

Nagbe scored the golazo in the 45th minute of what was eventually a 2-1 home loss to Sporting KC in Week 16.

The Safest Hands

Sounders legend takes second straight title with 4-save sequence


There's quality in quantity, and over the course of his 20-year professional career, Kasey Keller gave fans plenty of both.

And one of his last acts as a pro was to combine the two in a spectacular four-save series for Seattle against the San Jose Earthquakes in Week 31, a performance that earned the now-retired legend his second straight Save of the Year award.

D.C. United's De Rosario voted Volkswagen MLS MVP
Canadian legend honored after memorable run in US capital



LOS ANGELES – On Friday, D.C. United attacker Dwayne De Rosario officially did the individual double, adding the 2011 Volkswagen MLS Most Valuable Player crown to the Golden Boot he won earlier this year.

The Canadian international, who played the last 18 games of the season with D.C. after spending the first half of the year with Toronto FC and the New York Red Bulls, beat out Houston's Brad Davis and FC Dallas' Brek Shea to become the fourth D.C. player and first Canadian to win the award.
