Brad Davis, the "Left-Footed David Beckham" has been playing in MLS for 10 seasons and for the first time, he's been awarded the April Player of the Month award by the North American Soccer Reporters. Frankly, it's about time.

Davis has been outstanding for the Dynamo all season, leading the league with six assist and helping the Dynamo to a 3-0-2 record in April. He was directly involved with seven of the ten goals Houston scored in April and has served as the team's captain while Brian Ching was sidelined with a rib injury, wearing the armband for 441 of his 449 minutes in April.

Davis ranks first in the league goal-scoring chances created with 34 entering this weekend's games (according to Opta). Will Bruin benefited the most from Davis' accurate delivery, with assist on three of his four goals from him.

Davis' excellent performance comes as no surprise to Dynamo fans who've been watching the midfielder work his magic since moving with the club from San Jose in 2006. It's good to see Brad getting the attention and awards he deserves from the voting media.

Not bad for the Dynamo having Will Bruin when the latest Player of the Week award and now this honor for Davis.
