Seattle Sounders left back Joevin Jones has been in the form of his life recently and is showing no signs of stopping.
As we head into Week 11 of the MLS season, MLSSoccer.com’s Armchair Analyst Matt Doyle has crowned Jones the Fullback of the Year so far. The Trinidadian international is second in the league in assists with five and has been as instrumental a part of the Sounders’ offense as he has defensively, shutting down opposing attackers with a 1-v-1 skill that few of his counterparts can rival.
“Jones has been the brightest light in an otherwise sluggish start to the season for Seattle,” wrote Doyle. “He gets forward with abandon, has become an above average defender, and his five assists are one behind the league leaders. By my (unofficial) count, no defender's ever had more than eight in a season.”
