The men in the middle got their due praise on Friday when the league announced its adidas Referee and Assistant Referee of the Year awards.

Veteran Kevin Stott earned the 2010 adidas Referee of the Year honor. The 43-year-old officiated in 17 games this season, dishing out 62 yellow cards and just two red cards — the lowest tally for referees that worked 15 games or more. He whistled an average 22.2 fouls per game.

D.C. United President & CEO:

We're all very proud of Andy winning the MLS Rookie of the Year Award, which he richly deserved. The last D.C. United player to win the award was Ben Olsen in 1998 -- the fact that each wore number 14, and each played with a fierce commitment and great skill and intelligence has not been lost on us. We look forward to Andy continuing to improve and expect him to have an even better second season.
