[AWARDS] Clint Dempsey repeated as Futbol de Primera's Player of the Year, winning his third award in voting of 183 U.S. sports journalists. The Tottenham striker beat out U.S. national teammates Michael Bradley and Tim Howard for the award, which is in its 22nd year.

Dempsey received a total of 352 points, while Bradley finished second with 248 points and Howard placed third with 169 points.

Dempsey had six goals in nine games in 2012 for the USA, including goals in World Cup 2014 qualifying to lead the USA to next year's Hexagonal.

Dempsey, who also won the award in 2006, is the second player to have won the award at least three times.

Landon Donovan has won seven times (2002-04 and 2007-10).

Kasey Keller (1999 and 2005) and Eric Wynalda (1992 and 1996) are the only other multiple winners.

Other winners: Earnie Stewart (2001), Claudio Reyna (2000), Cobi Jones (1998), Eddie Pope (1997), Alexi Lalas (1995), Marcelo Balboa (1994), Thomas Dooley (1993) and Hugo Perez (1991).
