For all the veterans in the Los Angeles Galaxy’s lineup, it’s been a rookie defender who has stood out amongst the rest this week.

The former Michigan Wolverine Kofi Opare scored his team’s lone goal in their mid-week 1-0 victory over the Montreal Impact and helped earn a second consecutive clean sheet against the San Jose Earthquakes on Sunday evening.

Opare beat out Kekuta Manneh, Wil Trapp, and Deshorn Brown for this week’s honors.
