By Jeff Crandall

Mike Magee has racked up the accolades the last year. MLS MVP, Best XI, Team MVP and surely a few other awards were garnered during his stunning 2013 campaign. The last honor he received before heading into the 2014 season was Fire Player of the Year at Monday night's 26th annual Comcast SportsNet Awards, benefiting the March of Dimes.

Magee was honored alongside the Bears Martellus Bennett, the Blackhawks Patrick Sharp, the Bulls Nazr Mohammed, the Cubs Welington Castillo, White Sox Nate Jones. Blackhawks legend Stan Mikita also earned the night's Lifetime Achievement Award.

Mike jokingly thanked the children's charity for helping him get out of "preseason boot camp in Florida" but also for the great work they do with kids saying, "any charity dedicated to children is brilliant".

He also made special mention of Naperville native and Paralympic athlete Alyssa Gialamas who earned the night's "Inspirational Athlete Award". Of her he said, "she's definitely the best athlete in the room."
