Poll: Who is the Colorado Rapids 2013 Young Player of the Year?

On Saturday the Colorado Rapids will be presenting the annual year-end awards following the match against the Vancouver Whitecaps on Fan Appreciation Night.

We'll know who the players selected as their own Most Valuable Player, Defensive Player of the Year, and Young Player of the Year.

In addition, the Rapids will be presenting the Fan Favorite Award, as voted for by fans last week on And, KSE Charities will announce the winner of the Humanitarian of the Year.

The one award that won't be officially presented is the Golden Boot. Even though Deshorn Brown leads the team with nine goals, such statistical awards require the season to be completed.

So, now that the players have voted for MVP, Defensive, and Young Player, we thought we'd throw it out to the fans to see who you would have picked. We'll start today with the Young Player of the Year, which requires the player to be less than 24 years old the majority of the season.

There are 12 eligible players, and this is about as tough a choice as you'll have. Vote for your Young Player of the Year. We'll compare the fans' winner to the actual ones that the players selected next week. All the polls will close on Saturday at noon.
