[MLS AWARDS] New England defender Michael Parkhurst, who started 28 games and committed only nine fouls in 2,520 minutes of play, won the 2008 MLS Fair Play award. Chicago keeper Jon Busch was named Goalkeeper of the Year, and the Columbus' Chad Marshall was voted Defender of the Year.

Parkhurst, 24, who also won the 2007 MLS Fair Play Award, did not receive a caution or red card for the second consecutive season.

The New England Revolution earned the MLS Team Fair Play award as the club with the fewest disciplinary points during the 2008 regular season.

Busch, 32, played every minute (2,700) of all 30 regular-season games for Chicago, which ranked first in MLS in shutouts (10).

Marshall, 24, started 29 games in 2008, ranking him second on the Crew in minutes played with 2,485 while helping it capture the regular-season title, the Supporters' Shield. The Crew's defense allowed the third fewest goals (36), behind the Houston Dynamo (32) and the Chicago Fire (33).
