Last week we kicked off our #TeamDillon vs #TeamDeshorn campaign for MLS Rookie of the Year.

It’s pretty clear that Dillon Powers and Deshorn Brown are frontrunners for the award, as both have had a solid statistical season in their first professional year. Looking at the stats alone, it’s not an easy decision to make. So we have decided to make it easy on the voters by pitting Dillon and Deshorn against each other off the field in the Rapids’ first Battle ROYale. (See how we did that, ROY, Rookie of the Year).

Battle ROYale consists of a series of simple challenges meant to test the creativity and athletic prowess of Dillon and Deshorn. The contests were great fun for the guys and some of their teammates seemed to enjoy it as well.

Here's the first video, from the Colorado Rapids Instagram account. Follow us on Instagram and Twitter for other videos, and let us know which Rapids player you think should be Major League Soccer’s Rookie of the Year.
