After tearing his ACL last February and missing the entire 2018 season, Jordan Morris returned in 2019 to score 10 regular-season goals alongside a career-high seven assists while leading the Sounders to the No. 2 seed in the MLS Western Conference and a first-round playoff win last Saturday.
For those efforts, Morris has been named MLS Comeback Player of the Year, the league announced Tuesday morning.
“Obviously it’s a big honor, and I’m just grateful to be back on the field this year after last year,” Morris said. “I’m thankful for all the people that helped me get back out here — the training staff, teammates, family, everyone that supported me through a tough year last year.
