The holiday weekend was pretty good to the MLS rookies. Seven rookies went the full 90 minutes over the weekend with two more coming close going over 80 minutes of play.

But the big story out of the rookie camp had to be Colorado Rapids forward Deshorn Brown and his two assists on the night against Chivas USA. Brown helped set up both Colorado goals in the 2-0 win on Saturday night, giving Brown the edge the rookie stat race so far this season with two goals and three assists. Not bad for the Generation adidas star.

Elsewhere, Walker Zimmerman got his first start for FC Dallas at home against San Jose. He made a couple good stops on the evening and even helped get the counter attack going that lead to the only goal of that game for Dallas.

Here is how the rest of the rookies did in Week 13.

  • Curious how this year compares to previous year for rookie minutes. It seems as though there’s been several break out players this season across the MLS.
