The San Jose Earthquakes have been given an injection of excitement late in a disappointing campaign.
Homegrown Player signing Tommy Thompson made his third consecutive start for the Earthquakes on Saturday, playing the full 90 minutes in a 1-1 draw with Real Salt Lake. Though he didn’t score, Thompson was important throughout and drew seven fouls for his squad.
The former Indiana Hoosier’s performance earned him SBI MLS Rookie of the Week. Thompson beat out Steve Birnbaum and Chris Duvall for this week’s honors.
What did you think of Thompson’s performance? Which rookie stood out to you in MLS Week 25?
