Sounders FC has some representation in the latest Seattle Sports Star of the Year award nominations, and it comes in the form of young DeAndre Yedlin being among the finalists for Male Athlete of the Year. The 20-year-old defender had a standout rookie campaign, leading the team in minutes, making the MLS All-Star Team, playing in the FIFA U-20 World Cup, and even collecting a goal and assist in the playoffs.

The Sounders have been no stranger to the annual event, with Adrian Hanauer and Gary Wright winning top executive awards and Kasey Keller winning top professional athlete a couple years ago.

Soccer programs from the University of Washington, Seattle University and Washington State University are also in the mix for awards this year. Tickets for the Jan. 22 event at Benaroya Hall, the 79th edition of the awards banquet, can be purchased here.
