SEATTLE, WASH. – Major League Soccer today announced the finalists for its 2019 Year-End Awards, with Sounders FC forward Jordan Morris named as one of three finalists for 2019 MLS Comeback Player of the Year. This year’s winner of Comeback Player of the Year is set to be announced on Tuesday, October 22.
The finalists earned the most votes in polling of three voting groups:
- Current MLS players
- MLS clubs (coaches, technical directors / general managers)
- Media members who consistently covered the 2019 MLS regular season
After suffering a torn ACL last February that caused him to miss the entire 2018 season, Morris came storming back in 2019 with an impressive 10 goals and career-high seven assists in 26 appearances.
