Toronto FC announced Tuesday that defender Nana Attakora-Gyan has been named the recipient of the Canadian U-20 Player of the Year Award for the 2008 season. Fifty percent of the votes were compiled by national team coaches and the other half by Canadian coaches who have taken the Canadian Soccer Association’s national course at the B and A levels.”It’s a great testament to Nana and how hard he worked last season,” said Toronto FC head coach John Carver. “It’s a great start to the season for him, and we’re delighted he’s been given that honour.”

Attakora-Gyan made his first MLS start on Saturday, August 8 in Colorado in a 1-0 TFC victory over the Rapids. He logged 318 minutes making five appearances, three of those in a starting role. The defender also started in each of Toronto FC’s two international friendlies, July 5 against Pachuca of Mexico, and July 15 versus Independiente of Argentina.

The native of Orangeville, ON is a member of the Canadian U-20 team that has begun preparing for next year’s CONCACAF Men’s Under-20 Championship. He took part in all three U-20 camps.
