In addition to being well represented on the MASL All-Rookie Team, three Comets were named to the All-MASL second team following the 2021 season. Two defenders, John Sosa and Ray Lee, plus player-coach Leo Gibson were voted to the team. 

Gibson led the team in scoring with 20 points (8G-12A) in 10 games during the regular season and added three goals and four assists during Kansas City's playoff run. 

Sosa and Lee both finished among the team leaders in regular-season scoring with 14 and 13 points, respectively as well as anchoring a stingy Comets defense. The MASL League release is below.

CARLSBAD, CA (April 8, 2021) – The Major Arena Soccer League (MASL) today announced the recipients of the All-MASL 2nd Team for the 2021 season.

Each active MASL player, head coach, and one member of each team front office were invited to submit one ballot. Voting was based on the regular season performances.

Calculating the 1st, 2nd and 3rd All-MASL Teams are based on a point system. Players receive three points for a 1st team vote, two points for the 2nd team, and one point for a 3rd team vote. The highest number of points is then calculated to determine three Forward/Midfielders in each team, then two Defenders, and one GK. In case of a tie in points, it is determined by who had more 1st team votes, then 2nd team. The All-Rookie Team is selected by the highest total votes by position (F, M/F, D, GK). Individual Major Awards are based on the highest number of total votes. Tiebreakers go to the player with the most all league points or it can be determined a tie.
