Dwayne De Rosario of D.C. United Wins League MVP Award

Dwayne DeRosario has probably had the most interesting season of any player in the MLS—ever. He has now topped off that season by being named the league's most valuable player.

DeRosario started off the 2011 MLS season in his hometown club of Toronto FC. He played there for only two games before being traded to the New York Red Bulls.

He wore the New York colors for a mere 87 days—which included 13 games—and notched two goals and four assists.

DeRosario was then traded from the Red Bulls to D.C. United for midfielder Dax McCarty. He closed out the 2011 season with D.C. by scoring 13 goals in 18 games.

His numbers this season—16 goals and 12 assists—meant he was the only MLS player to finish with double digits in both categories.

He is well deserving of the award. With 72.72 percent of the media vote, DeRosario beat out Brad David of Houston, Dallas' young star Brek Shea and Landon Donovan.
