TAMPA – Today USL League Two announced that Charlotte Independence 2 midfielder Aidan Morrison has won the 2023 USL League Two Young Player of the Year award.

He scored in the 81st minute during Independence’s thrilling 6-5 defeat to Tobacco Road FC at the end of May, and again just four days later while shorthanded against playoff-bound Charlotte Eagles.
