[AWARDS] In his second season with the San Jose Earthquakes, Bobby Convey was named the MLS Comeback Player of the Year. After struggling with injuries in his first year back from England, where he spent five seasons with Reading, Convey has led the Quakes to the Eastern Conference final.

In 2009, Convey struggled with a nagging hamstring injury and the lingering effects of a 2007 microfracture surgery on his right knee. But he bounced back in a big way in 2010, leading the Quakes with 10 assists -- tied for fifth in the league.

In the second leg of the Eastern Conference semifinals at New York, Convey engineered the Quakes' comeback from a 1-0 aggregate deficit with two goals and an assist in their 3-1 win over the Red Bulls.

Convey, who played for the USA at the 2006 World Cup, began his MLS career in 2000 with D.C. United, where he spent five seasons.

He also represented the USA at the 1999 Under-17 World Championship and 2001 and 2003 Under-20 World Cups.
