Galaxy's Franklin wins Rookie of the Year award

Major League Soccer announced Thursday that Los Angeles Galaxy defender Sean Franklin has been named the 2008 Gatorade Rookie of the Year. Franklin started 26 out of 27 games and recorded one assist.

The 23-year-old native of Palmdale, Calif., and 2008 graduate of Cal State Northridge was the Galaxy's first pick in the 2008 MLS SuperDraft and the fourth overall selection. He is the first Los Angeles Galaxy player to win Rookie of the Year honors.

The MLS Gatorade Rookie of the Year winner received the most votes from polling of media, MLS players and MLS coaches and general managers. All first-year players in MLS without previous professional experience were considered for the Gatorade Rookie of the Year award.
