Bobby Warshaw Named Herman Trophy Semifinalist
Dec. 2, 2009
Stanford, Calif. -- Stanford junior midfielder Bobby Warshaw was among the 15 men's soccer players named to the 2009 Missouri Athletic Club's Hermann Trophy Semifinalist Watch List, which was announced today by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America.
Warshaw joined Danny Mwanga of Oregon State and Kyle Nakazawa of UCLA as Pac-10 players that were named semifinalists.
Considered the highest individual honor in intercollegiate soccer, the recipient of the M.A.C. Hermann Trophy is selected by Division I head coaches who are current members of the NSCAA. The winner of the award will be announced at a news conference on Jan. 8, 2010, in St. Louis, Mo.
An All-Pac-10 first-team selection, Warshaw, who is from Mechanicsburg, Pa., started all 20 games for the Cardinal. He scored six goals and recorded an assist for 13 points, which led Stanford's balanced offensive attack. Despite playing a more defensive role this season, Warshaw led Stanford in scoring for the third consecutive season. In addition, he ranked third in the Conference in game-winning goals (4).
Warshaw was also a key member of a defense that allowed just .090 goals per game and recorded nine shutouts on the season.
Warshaw and the 2009 men's soccer team finished with 12 wins, the most since 2002. The Cardinal also advanced to the NCAA tournament and a trip to the round of 16.
