Ryan Meara Holds No. 1 Spot in MLSsoccer.com's Rookie Rankings

By Frank Della Femina

There's no denying that Red Bulls 'keeper Ryan Meara has been playing some lights-out soccer these past few weeks. Just last week MLSsoccer.com placed the Fordham University product at the top of their Rookie Rankings. With another shutout against Houston and a fourth-straight win over Philly this past week, it should come as no surprise that once again Meara holds down the No. 1 spot in Week 10 rankings:

"Meara's three-game shutout streak is over, but he won't care one bit. New York won for the fourth straight game on Sunday afternoon in Philadelphia, rewarding Meara's handful of brilliant saves with a second-half winner. With each game that passes, it looks like MLS has found its next upwardly mobile goalkeeping prospect."

Kudos to Meara, who was also named to the MLSsoccer.com Team of the Week, is up for Save of the Week (voting ends tonight) and received praise as FoxSoccer.com's Rookie of the Week.
