D.C. United midfielder Nick DeLeon received his first test against rivals New York Red Bulls this past weekend, and he passed with flying colors.
DeLeon scored a goal and was a handful all night against an outmatched Red Bulls side that seemed to have no answer for United's attack. DeLeon's performance in United's 4-1 win on Sunday was the latest solid game put together by the former Louisville player, and it was good enough to earn him his third SBI MLS Rookie of the Week award and second consecutive.
DeLeon beat out New York Red Bulls goalkeeper Ryan Meara and Ray Gaddis of the Philadelphia Union for the honor.
What do you think of DeLeon winning yet again? Impressed with Gaddis' play for the Union?
