Aaron Kovar is the winner of this year's Seattle Sounders beep test, repeating a feat he shared with former S2 player Duncan McCormick last year. Up until last year, the competition had been dominated by David Estrada, but Kovar also performed well in 2014.
The beep test, for the uninitiated, basically measures stamina and speed and is a tool the Sounders coaches use to see how much conditioning work players have done in the offseason. The test consists of players having to reach an end point by the time a beep goes off. The gap between the beeps decreases in each interval. The last player standing is deemed the winner.
