Rapids striker Andre Shinyashiki named MLS Rookie of the Year

Rapids striker Andre Shinyashiki named MLS Rookie of the Year

Colorado Rapids striker Andre Shinyashiki has won Major League Soccer’s Rookie of the Year Award, the league announced Tuesday.

Shinyashiki, selected fifth overall pick by the Rapids in the 2019 MLS SuperDraft, shined in his first professional season. The University of Denver alum scored seven goals, including two game-winners, in 31 appearances this season.

The 22-year-old began his career with a bang, debuting in the Rapids’ 2019 home opener against the Portland Timbers. He scored in the dying moments of a dramatic 3-3 draw in what was the coldest game in MLS history. A few months later he scored a late goal in Los Angeles to give the Rapids their first win of the season.

“Andre had a blistering start to his rookie year and has shown everyone why we valued him so highly in the last MLS SuperDraft,” Rapids Executive Vice President and General Manager Padraig Smith said in a news release. “We’re excited to see his career progress with the club.”

Shinyashiki became a key cog in the Rapids attack as the season progressed. The rookie, along with experienced strike partners Kei Kamara and Diego Rubio, vaulted Colorado’s offense from worst in 2018 to the league’s third-best in 2019.

A native of São Paulo, Brazil, Shinyashiki is the second Colorado Rapids rookie ever to get the nod, joining Dillon Powers (2013). The midfielder left Colorado for Orlando in 2017 where he still plays.

Shinyashiki played in the Rapids developmental academy before he left to become a First Team All-American with the Pioneers. He’s one of several key Rapids under the age of 23 who make up a young core that will try to end a three-year postseason drought in 2020.
