Best Rapid (2000)
A March acquisition from the Chicago Fire, speedy forward Junior Agogo is quickly becoming a fan favorite at Mile High Stadium, thanks to six goals and six assists in his first ten games for the Rapids and solid play since then. Just twenty, he was born in Ghana and played last season for Sheffield Wednesday of the mighty English Premier League. As the most rapid Rapid, the aptly named Agogo's proven an ideal complement to fellow forwards Jorge Dely Valdez and Henry Zambrano and a source of joy for coach Glenn "Mooch" Myernick.
