[MLS AWARDS] Canadian Dwayne De Rosario was voted the Volkswagen MLS Most Valuable Player for the 2011 season. The midfielder played for three teams in 2011, starting out at Toronto FC, moving to the New York Red Bulls three games into the season and then being traded in late June to D.C. United, where he hit his stride and amassed 13 goals and seven assists in 18 games.
