Wizards Top Scorers through 1997

Continuing from my post earlier today where I posted the top goal scorers in Wizards history through the 1996 season. I'm continuing with the top goal scorers through the 1997 season now. The number in parenthesis after the goal total is the players change in position from the year before. Pictures on this entry will only be of players who are making their first appearance on the list, for pictures of each player, check previous entries

1. Preki - 30 (-)

2. Vitalis "Digital" Takawira - 21 (-)

3. Mark Chung - 18 (-)

4. Mo Johnston - 12 (-)

5. Frank Klopas - 7 (+2)

6. Paul Wright - 5 (N/A) - The fastest man in MLS.

7T. Matt McKeon - 4 (N/A) - The Train Matt McKeon, the guy drafted ahead of Eddie Pope, worked out well for the Wizards didn't it?

7T. Mike Sorber - 4 (-3)

9T. Sean Bowers - 3 (N/A) - The Tower of Power Sean Bowers. Him throwing out a jersey after every game was always a really cool thing, I even remember getting one of those jerseys at one time.

9T. Alan Prampin - 3 (-4)

11T. Scott Uderitz - 2 (-4)

11T. Uche Okafor - 2 (-4)

13T. Ryan Tinsley - 1 (N/A) - The "Tin Man"

13T. Brian Johnson - 1 (N/A) - Sorry I don't have much to say about these 2, but neither did a whole lot, and both were around the time that I wasn't really following the team that closely to know the fringe players like these 2.

13T. Edmundo Rodriguez - 1 (N/A) - Out of all the names on all the scoring lists throughout the seasons for the Wizards, this was the one name that even I didn't even recognize. Apparently he played 16 games for the Wizards starting 4.

13T. Yari Allnutt - 1 (-3)

So there you have it, the leading scorers for the Wizards through the 1997 season. The top 4 remained the same, and the team has had a total of 16 players score.
