Warshaw and Jahn Earn National Honors From TopDrawerSoccer.com
Nov. 19, 2009
Stanford, Calif. - Bobby Warshaw and Adam Jahn were honored for their outstanding seasons with the release of the TopDrawerSoccer.com national teams of the year. Warshaw was honored as second team, while Jahn made first team all-rookie.
Warshaw was named to the national second team as a defender in his first year at the position. The Stanford junior played forward in his first two seasons, before being moved to the back this year to shore up a defense that lost a pair of starters to graduation. The Cardinal defense has been strong all season, recording a Pac-10 leading seven shutouts. In addition, Warshaw has been able to get forward to score six goals, which leads the Cardinal.
Jahn was a highly touted recruit out of El Macero, Calif who was a two-time California Gatorade State Player of the Year. He started all 17 games up front for Stanford, scoring two goals and leading the Cardinal in both shots (36) and shots on goal (19).
The 6'2' Jahn has provided a big physical target for the Stanford offense, which has been much improved in 2009. His presence also allowed Bret Simon to move Warshaw to defense where his ball-winning and leadership could be utilized.
Both Warshaw and Jahn played crucial roles in leading the Cardinal back to the NCAA tournament in 2009. Stanford opens with Saint Mary's, Thursday, Nov. 19, at 7:00 p.m. at Laird Q. Cagan Stadium.
