Austin Berry Still Top Of Rookie Rankings

From the MLS Website: "For the first six games of his MLS career, Berry watched from the relative safety of the substitutes' bench. Then, with Corey Gibbs' absence casting a long shadow, Frank Klopas inserted his 24-year-old rookie into the starting lineup for good. Now, 23 straight starts later, Berry has put together a glowing rookie campaign and the Fire are a game in hand away from taking control of first place in the Eastern Conference."
