Yesterday I posted the Wizards team awards for this season. Now it's time for me to give you the Down the Byline awards (I'm looking for a name of the awards, maybe the Downies or something like that). Anyways, onto the awards.
Rookie of the Year
Roger Espinoza has the stats, but for me, Leathers has been the better player for the Wizards this season. He started the season as the starting right back, lost it, then won it again and has made the position his own.
Defender of the Year
Hartman came into the season ready to battle for the number 1 shirt, but came in lighter and fitter then he did last season and was one of the best goalkeepers in the league. He tied for the league lead in shutouts, a great season for the goalkeeper.
Goal of the Year
Davy Arnaud vs LA 9/13
Like last year's winner, Kerry Zavagnin, just an absolute blast from the midfielder to win the goal of the year. A wonder goal with no chance of being saved.
As I mentioned with the team awards, Conrad won the title for me with his goal against New England late in the season. Him and Kevin Hartman had battled for the award, but it goes to Jimmy.
