Sebastian LeToux Wins Xbox 360 Fair Play Award
NEW YORK — For the second year running Sébastien Le Toux has won the Xbox 360 Individual Fair Play Award, MLS announced on Tuesday.
The league also announced that the Portland Timbers were awarded the Xbox 360 Team Fair Play awards.
Le Toux is the third MLS player to collect the honor in back-to-back years, following in the footsteps of Michael Parkhurst (2007-2008) and Steve Ralston (1999-2000) as the only other players to win the award multiple times as well as in back-to-back seasons. This year, the Philadelphia attacker beat out Colorado Rapids defender Kosuke Kimura and New England Revolution defender Darrius Barnes, the two other finalists.
In 3,060 minutes of action for the Union this season, the French striker committed just 20 fouls and didn’t receive a yellow card. He scored 11 goals and nine assists to lead the Union in each category as they made their first appearance in the MLS playoffs in just their second year of existence.
