Morrison Announced As 2001 Missouri Athletic Club Candidate
Oct. 31, 2001
ST. LOUIS, Mo. - Cardinal senior defender Lee Morrison (Carmichael, Calif.) has been announced as a candidate for this year's Missouri Athletic Club award, given annually to the top men's collegiate soccer player in the nation.
Morrison, who finished third in the voting for the same award in 2000, was listed as one of 15 men's nominees. The senior has started 80 consecutive games for the Cardinal at defender, seven shy of breaking the all-time record of 86. Morrison is also a finalist for the 2001 Hermann Trophy, given to men's soccer's premier player. He has scored three goals so far this season and tallied one assist, accumulating seven total points. The Cardinal defense has been one of the main reasons Stanford has been so successful this season, holding opponents to a 0.50 GAA (goals against average).
The Missouri Athletic Club award is the official National Soccer Coaches Association of America/adidas award for Division 1 players. The winners will be determined in voting by Division 1 coaches and will be announced in early December. The 16th winner of the men's award will be presented with the prestigious crystal ball trophy at the awards banquet on Friday, Jan. 11, 2002 at the Missouri Athletic Club in St. Louis.
