Poll: Young Player of Year

Young Michael Tetteh barely saw time with the senior team, was the promise shown in Reserve League games enough to win recognition?

Polling for the site 'awards' (no physical award actually given) for Offensive and Defensive Player of the Year weren't really close. It looks like Moment of the Year will see a run-off just like in 2010. Moving into the Young Player of Year the contest may be more about hope than performance. In the past there were a handful of players with large amounts of playing time that would qualify for a U-23 roster. The players in this age grouping didn't get as much playing time. For Steve Zakuani that was due to injury, for Servando Carrasco it was because he is a back-up to an amazing talent, for the rest their time came primarily in Reserve League Games. The other three included in the poll are the next three most used in all competitions including reserve matches. This means that David Estrada, Mike Seamon and Michael Tetteh (who is going to the Netherlands to train with the Generation Adidas team) make the cut. Miguel Montano, Bryan Meredith, Amadou Sanyang do not.
