The Colorado Rapids are off to an impressive 2-0 start to the 2012 season and one of the players instrumental to that good start is rookie Tony Cascio.

The UConn product has found a starting role on the veteran Rapids side and done well with the opportunity. On Sunday, he played like a veteran in Colorado's 2-1 victory against Philadelphia. Cascio provided the eventual game-winning goal when he stripped Chris Albright and finished off a beautiful goal for his first MLS score.

The performance made Cascio the clear-cut choice for SBI MLS Rookie of the Week, beating out a list of candidates that included D.C. United's Nick DeLeon and Real Salt Lake's Sebastian Velasquez.

What did you think of Cascio's performance? What rookie impressed you in MLS Week 2?
