Year End Awards Part 2

A day after I released the Down the Byline End of the Year Awards, the Wizards released their End of the Year awards in the post season media guide that is online.

Honda MVP - Eddie Johnson
Budweiser Golden Boot - Eddie Johnson
US Soccer Foundation Humanitarian of the Year - Jose Burciaga Jr.
Defender of the Year - Jimmy Conrad
Kansas City Wizards Heart Award - Davy Arnaud
Rookie of the Year - Michael Harrington
Kansas City Wizards Reserve Team Player of the Year - Ryan Pore

I can't argue with any of the choices in these awards. Considering each player that I handed an award to earned the same award for the Wizards. As for the awards I didn't hand out, Burciaga is definitely the humanitarian of the year, throughout the season we heard about Jose's trip down to New Orleans and his work with his foundation, the Jose Luis Burciaga Foundation both great causes. The heart award should be renamed to the Davy Arnaud Heart Award, because if it was handed out every season, Davy would likely be the winner every single time. As for the reserve player of the year, Pore once against lead the Wizards reserves in scoring, with 7 goals and 3 assists.
