Landon Donovan Named Honda Player of the Year and Player of the Decade

Congratulations are in order for Galaxy captain Landon Donovan who was just unveiled as the winner of the 2009 Honda Player of the Year award, which is given out annually to the player who is voted as having the best year with the U.S. National Team. This is the sixth time in his career that Donovan has won the award. No other player has won the prize more than twice.

In addition to being named the Player of the Year, Donovan was also named the Honda Player of the Decade. This honor comes as little surprise as he had won the Player of the Year award in six (2002, 2003, 2004, 2007, 2008, 2009) of the last 10 years.

Congratulations to Landon on these impressive honors and read more about the awards here.
