Michael Farfan's versatility has come in handy for the Philadelphia Union throughout the season, and the rookie proved his worth again over the weekend with a standout performance and great individual effort that led to a crucial equalizer in a big game and SBI MLS Rookie of the Week honors.

Farfan stepped in at right back and performed admirably for the injured Sheanon Williams. He also came up with the play of the game for the Union against Sporting Kansas City, having the wherewithal to save a Roger Torres cross from going out of play on the endline prior to squaring the ball for Sebastien Le Toux for the goal that salvaged a 1-1 road draw.

Farfan stood out to help him win the honors for the second time this season, besting D.C. United's Ethan White and Portland's Darlington Nagbe.
