Desmond Named Pre-Season Player of the Year
34 year old striker Anthony Desmond brings the luck of the Irish with him every time he steps onto the pitch for the Covington Old Boys. The quick quiltedman has rode that luck to over 300 goals in his 16 year career for the senior club -- including netting over 40 each of the past 4 seasons. Desmond nearly became a 60 goal scorer twice, in season 28 the MVP finished 1 goal away, then in season 30, Desmond picked up his 3rd MVP and finished with 58 goals. Desmond's consistent domination made him an easy choice to pick up a record 5th MVP. While he has clearly accumulated some miles while re-writing the record book, Desmond can afford to slow down and still be the best. He is surrounded with premier talent and will face several low-tier clubs, where he can rack up multi-digit goals. I expect Desmond to once again finish with 40+ goals and bring home the league MVP.
