SBI MLS Rookie of the Week: Andrew Wenger

AndrewWenger (AP)

When Andrew Wenger was selected with the first pick in the 2012 MLS Draft, the biggest question about him was what was his best position.

A standout defender, midfielder and forward at Duke, Wenger made a good case for being able to score goals in the pros when he delivered a classy finish on what wound up being the game-winning goal in Montreal's 2-1 victory against TFC on Saturday. The goal helped give Montreal their first MLS win, and earned Wenger SBI MLS Rookie of the Week honors.

Wenger beat out a strong field of rookies in MLS Week Five, including New York goalkeeper Ryan Meara, D.C. midfielder Nick DeLeon, RSL midfielder Sebastian Velasquez and Portland defender Andrew Jean-Baptiste.
