Ryan Meara has stood atop the weekly Rookie Rankings over at MLSsoccer.com for the past few weeks, so it shouldn't come as any major surprise that he is also atop the League's rankings for Week 12 as well.
After posting a 4-0-1 record over the Red Bulls' five matches in May, Meara is once again looking down at the rest of his 2012 draft class.
Here's what MLSsoccer.com had to say about the 21-year-old Fordham University product:
D.C. United may sit in first in the Eastern Conference as the calendar turns to June, but with Meara at the helm of what has become one of MLS' stingiest defenses, this could be the year New York finally make a regular-season run. And to think, the 21-year-old was a questionable SuperDraft pick back in January.
It's good to see Soccer by Ives isn't the only site recognizing Meara for his efforts. Make sure you visit the link above at MLSsoccer.com to vote for Meara.
