Dwayne De Rosario Named MLS Player Of The Week

After winning MLS Player of the Week honors three times while a member of D.C. United in 2011, Dwayne De Rosario has earned the prestigious honor for the first time in 2012.

The North American Soccer Reporters organization gave De Rosario the honor for the 10th time in his MLS career, which matches DeRo with Edson Buddle, Cobi Jones, and Ante Razov for third-most on MLS' all-time list.

De Rosario scored three goals in the Black-And-Red's two home matches this past week. He opened the scoring in United's 2-0 win over the Colorado Rapids Wednesday and added two more on the 3-1 win over Toronto FC on Saturday.

De Rosario now has five goals in 2012, tied with Chris Pontius for second-most on the team behind Maicon Santos. The Canadian international's seven assists are by far the most on the club, with Nick DeLeon and Brandon McDonald a distant second with three apiece.

D.C. United's season resumes on Saturday with a match against the New England Revolution at RFK Stadium. Kick-off is at 7:30 p.m.
