Colorado Rapids’ Andre Shinyashiki named 2019 AT&T MLS Rookie of the Year

Colorado Rapids forward Andre Shinyashiki has been named the 2019 AT&T MLS Rookie of the Year, the league announced today.

“It’s such an honor,” said Shinyashiki. “Going against guys that are such high quality, like Hassani [Dotson] and [Brenden] Aaronson, and for me to win the award, not necessarily over them but together, is good because those guys are very quality players and to come out on top and win is amazing and a dream come true.”

“We couldn’t be more proud of Andre’s achievement,” said Pádraig Smith, Colorado Rapids Executive VP & General Manager.
