Michael Bradley has claimed a long overdue honor, as the Associated Press reports he’s the winner of U.S. Soccer’s Male Athlete of the Year.
The 28-year-old Toronto FC midfielder has done whatever’s been asked of him by Jurgen Klinsmann, playing in a more advanced position for the USMNT.
The captain scored the Yanks’ lone goals in a 1-1 Gold Cup draw against Panama and the 2-1 ouster at the hands of Jamaica.
Bradley won the honor over Clint Dempsey, Fabian Johnson, Brad Guzan and DeAndre Yedlin.
Carli Lloyd was given the women’s honor on Wednesday.
