LA Riot Squad Player of the Year


The LA Riot Squad Player of the Year trophy

Every year the Riot Squad awards the player they feel most embodied the LARS spirit, on and off the pitch. This award is tallied by vote. This award isn’t always given to the team MVP. Often it’s awarded to the player who showed the most passion, and maybe stuck around for beers.
