We could have put a lot of names here: bulldog midfielder Lance Watson, stalwart defenders Jay Needham and Leonard Griffin (Max's older brother), Kenyan attacking midfielder Lawrence Olum, and others have had great years in the Aztex's rise from last place in 2009 to the best record in the league this year. But we'll go with Max Griffin – the Aztex's youngest starter burst out of UCLA to become the league's third-leading scorer at press time (and second on the team, after last year's player of the year Eddie Johnson). His three goals on June 19 against Miami marked the first hat trick in Aztex history, and his five assists lead the team, as well.
