Molino named USL PRO MVP for second time

[AWARDS] Kevin Molino claimed his second USL PRO Most Valuable Player award after a record-breaking season for Orlando City.

Signed to an MLS contract before the season ahead of Orlando City's move to MLS in 2015, the Trinidad & Tobago international set a league record with 20 goals in 27 appearances and also led USL PRO with nine assists.

Goalkeeper of the Year, Rookie of the Year
A former PDL All-Conference selection for the Ocean City Nor’easters, John McCarthy had a remarkable rookie season for the Rochester Rhinos that saw him lead the league in goals against-average (0.72) and shutouts (10) as he helped the Rhinos return to the postseason.
Defender of the Year
Former Columbus Crew defender Nemanja Vukovic, a native of Montenegro, had a standout season for expansion Sacramento Republic FC. After opening the season at left back, Vukovic moved centrally to partner with Mickey Daly and solidify Republic FC’s defense. The 6-foot-2 veteran also had a goal and three assists in the regular season as he proved a threat at set pieces.
Coach of the Year
Former U.S. international Preki added a USL PRO Coach of the Year award to the MLS Coach of the Year award he earned with Chivas USA in 2007. Preki pushed expansion Sacramento Republic FC to a second-place finish in the regular season that was clinched with a game to spare thanks to a 10-game undefeated streak (8-0-2) that spanned July to September.
