16 Semifinalists for MAC Hermann Trophy Announced
The shortlist for the award given annually to the most outstanding college soccer player has been widdled down to 16. The Missouri Athletic Club, which gives the award annually to a men’s and women’s soccer player, released its list of finalists on Tuesday.
UCLA senior Leo Stolz and Jordan Morris, the first collegian to be called up to the senior U.S. Men’s National Team in 15 years, lead the list of standouts. Stolz was a finalist for the award last year, which went to Maryland forward Patrick Mullins for the second consecutive season. Harrison Shipp came in second in voting.
Stolz, Georgetown sophomore centerback Joshua Yaro, Michigan State’s junior midfielder Jay Chapman, North Carolina fifth-year senior forward Andy Craven and Creighton sophomore Fabian Herbers are the only semifinalists still playing in the NCAA tournament
Navy’s senior defender Joseph Greenspan and South Florida senior midfielder Lucas Baldin’s seasons ended prior to the tournament.
The players hail from five different countries and nine different U.S. states. Nine are seniors, three are juniors and four are in their second years. Coaches and the public will have a chance to narrow the list of semifinalists down to three finalists in mid-December. The public can vote HERE.
