California's Calen Carr and UCLA's Marvell Wynne Named 2005 <i>Soccer America</i> MVPs

Dec. 16, 2005

Two Pacific-10 Conference men's soccer players have been named Most Valuable Players by Soccer America. The magazine voted Calen Carr of CALIFORNIA and Marvell Wynne of UCLA to the 11-member team.

Carr, the 2005 Pac-10 Player of the Year, finished his senior season leading the Pac-10 in seven categories: shots (91), shots per game (4.33), points (30), points per game (1.43), goals (13), goals per game (0.62), and game-winning goals (6). The Berkeley, Calif., native helped the Bears advance to the NCAA quaterfinals for the first time in program history after scoring two critical goals against Wake Forest in the Sweet 16.

Wynne, a semifinalist for the M.A.C. Hermann Trophy, scored one goal in 2005, the first in two seasons at UCLA. Posting three assists in 2005, Wynne (Poway, Calif.) was twice named to the Top Drawer Soccer National Team of the Week. As a defender, Wynne contributed to UCLA's 14 shutouts this season and helped limit eventual national champion, Maryland, to zero shots on goal.

This year marks the 30th year Soccer America has honored the top player in collegiate men's soccer with its MVP awards.
