Teal Bunbury

Forward Teal Bunbury took home the Revolution’s Golden Boot award with
a team-leading eight goals on the season. Bunbury, who claimed the trophy for the first time in his seventh season with the Revs, rocketed up the
leaderboard late in the campaign with four goals across the team’s last
seven games.
Bunbury scored six times in 32 appearances last season, but managed to
surpass that total with eight goals in only 23 games in 2020. Of the 11-year
MLS veteran’s eight goals this season, six came on the road, which led
the league. His 31 career away goals are seventh among all active MLS
players:
