Not only did Mason excel in NASL league play but also had strong performances in the US Open Cup against Atlanta United, Orlando City SC and FC Cincinnati. "This is a great honor for Mason to be recognized as the league's best left footed central defender and caps off his consistent, strong play over the last four years in NASL," reflected SSM's President and USSF Licensed Intermediary Justin B. Stone. "Miami FC set new NASL records playing an attractive playing style, and Mason's abilities helped the team accomplish most of its goals in 2017."
