Knowing James, this means a lot to him. Riley, right fullback for Sounders FC, was presented a plaque as Prost Amerika’s Sounders FC player of the year today in a short ceremony at Starfire.
That’s Steve Clare from the locally-based soccer Web site on the left. UPDATE 3:48 p.m. Here’s Steve’s article about James.
Riley was pretty deserving. Certainly one of the most consistent performers on the team who played a lot and was also a team leader on and off the field. A guy who had his teammates’ back all season long.
