When manager Schellas Hyndman realized he needed to replace the injured George John in the lineup, Hyndman knew who to turn to.
FC Dallas rookie defender London Woodberry, a homegrown signing after four years at the University of Maryland, stepped in and turned in two solid starts last week. He helped FC Dallas rack up four points, and also earned SBI MLS Rookie of the Week in the process.
Making his first two starts in Major League Soccer, Woodberry helped his team earn a 1-1 draw with the Portland Timbers and a 2-1 victory over D.C. United.
Woodberry beat out Colorado Rapids midfielder Dillon Powers, Real Salt Lake forward Devon Sandoval, and San Jose Earthquakes forward Adam Jahn for this week’s honors.
What did you think of Woodberry’s performance this week? Which rookie impressed you the most in MLS Week 11?
