FIRST TEAM

Goalkeeper of the Year - Josh Wicks (Portland Timbers/USA)
The first-year Timbers goalkeeper finished the 2007 regular season as the league leader in several goalkeeping categories including shutouts (14) and goals-against average (0.60). Wicks, 23, joined the Timbers from the Vancouver Whitecaps.

Defender - Gabriel Gervais (Montreal Impact/Canada)
Gervais is the fifth player in the history of the league to be named All-League six times in his career and is the first to do so in consecutive seasons. The other five players to reach six are Danny Pena, Robin Fraser, Scott Schweitzer and teammate Mauro Biello.

Defender - David Hayes (Atlanta Silverbacks/USA)
A key player in the league since his debut with Milwaukee in 2001, Hayes is receiving the first All-League honor of his career.

Defender - Cameron Knowles (Portland Timbers/New Zealand)
The only player in the league to play every minute, Knowles was a key figure in the Timbers turnaround from tied for last in 2006 to second place a year later.

Midfielder - Stephen Armstrong (Charleston Battery/South Africa)
In his second season with the club, the former four-year MLS midfielder finished tied for 11th in the league in scoring with 16 points on two assists and seven goals, which ranked tied for seventh. It is the first All-League honor for Armstrong, who previously played for DC, Kansas City and Columbus.

Midfielder - Andrew Gregor (Portland Timbers/USA)
His fourth All-League honor is the first for Gregor not as a member of the Sounders. With Portland this season, he finished tied for third in the league in points with 21 points on eight goals (tied for fourth) and five assists (tied for fourth).

Midfielder - Martin Nash (Vancouver Whitecaps/Canada)
Nash has a lengthy USL-1 career dating back to his first season with Vancouver in 1995 and is being honored as an All-League player for the third time.

Midfielder - Zinho (Miami FC/Brazil)

Forward - Dan Antoniuk (Atlanta Silverbacks/USA)
Antoniuk spent three years at Portland, but has since moved around the league. He joined Vancouver in 2006, but was sent to Montreal before the campaign even started.
