Ghana and Phoenix Rising attacker Solomon Asante won two awards at the end of the United Soccer League after claiming the Golden Boot as well as the assists king. 

Asante became the second player in the USL's history to clinch both awards in the season, following Trinidad & Tobago international Kevin Molino, who recorded 20 goals and nine assists for Orlando City SC in the 2014 season.

The 29-year-old scored  22 USL Championship goals and  registered 17 assists in the 2019 regular season.

He also guided Rising FC to set Championship records for total wins (24), total points (78) and goals (89) in the regular season.

He was a key contributor for his side with his 17 assists and 39 combined goals and assists breaking single-season records set last season by 2018 Championship Most Valuable Player Emmanuel Ledesma for FC Cincinnati.
