Bobby Warshaw Named To Herman Trophy Watch List
Aug. 11, 2009
Stanford, Claif. - Stanford junior Bobby Warshaw has been named to the Herman Trophy Watch List as selected by the Missouri Athletic Club on Tuesday. The Herman Trophy is considered the highest individual honor in collegiate soccer.
The recipients of the Hermann Trophy are selected by Division I head coaches who are current members of the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA). The winner of the award will be announced at a news conference on Jan. 8, 2010, in St. Louis.
Warshaw is coming off a sophomore season where he led the Cardinal in scoring and was named first team All-Pac-10. After playing in the central defense during the spring season, Warshaw has proven that he can contribute to the Cardinal in many different ways.
'Bobby is capable of being one of the conference's top players at almost any position on the field,' said head coach Bret Simon. 'He was particularly effective at a central defender and leader in the spring season.'
Warshaw was one of four Pac-10 players to be selected to the preseason list. He joins Kyle Nakazawa and Michael Stephens of UCLA and Andrew Wiedman of California on the preseason watch list. Overall, 38 players from around the nation were selected to the list.
Stanford men's soccer begins their season, Thursday, Aug. 20, when they face Sonoma State at Laird Q. Cagan Stadium in an exhibition game. They will open the regular season on Tuesday, Sept. 1, when they travel to Bethlehem, Pa. to take on Lehigh.
