Bobby Warshaw Named First Team All-American
Dec. 12, 2009
Stanford, Calif. - Stanford junior Bobby Warshaw was named to National Soccer Coaches Association of America All America first team on Friday. Warshaw becomes the first Cardinal male to receive that honor since 2002.
An All-Pac-10 first team selection, Warshaw, who hails from Mechanicsburg, Pa., was honored after Stanford's successful 2009 season. He started all 20 games, scoring six goals and recording an assist for 13 points to lead Stanford's balanced offensive attack. Despite playing a more defensive role, he led the team in scoring for the third consecutive season and ranked third in the Pac-10 in game-winning goals (4). In addition, he was a key member of a defense that allowed just 0.90 goals per game and recorded nine shutouts.
Warshaw has already been named a semifinalist for the Herman Trophy, the highest award for men's collegiate soccer. He becomes the first All-American for the Cardinal since 2002, when Todd Dunivant was honored.
Warshaw led Stanford to a 12-6-3 season and a trip to the NCAA Sweet 16. The Cardinal were eliminated by No. 1 Akron after wins over Saint Mary's and UC Irvine to advance to the round of 16.
