WALNUT CREEK, Calif. - STANFORDâ€™s Bobby Warshaw has been named a finalist for the menâ€™s soccer Loweâ€™s Senior CLASS Award, it was announced Wednesday. The 10 finalists were chosen by a media committee from the list of 30 menâ€™s candidates that were announced in August.
Warshaw was honored in 2009 with his second first-team Academic All-Pac-10 selection and was also named a second-team CoSIDA/ESPN The Magazine Academic All-American. He maintains a 3.57 GPA in political science. Off the field, Warshaw volunteers at Lucille Packard Childrenâ€™s Hospital in Palo Alto. He also helped found â€œKostyville,â€ the student superfan group named after Stanford menâ€™s volleyball coach John Kosty.
Warshaw is one of Stanfordâ€™s captains this season and is currently second on the team in goals with three. He is the vocal leader of a Cardinal defense that has three shutouts on the year. Last season he led Stanford with six goals and helped the Cardinal advance to the Round of 16 in the NCAA Tournament.
The Loweâ€™s Senior CLASS Award is given to student-athletes who excel both on and off the field. To be eligible for the award, a student-athlete must be classified as an NCAA Division I senior and have notable achievements in four areas of excellence - community, classroom, character and competition.
The finalists will be voted on nationwide by media, coaches and fans, who will select one candidate who best exemplifies excellence in the four Cs of community, classroom, character and competition. Nationwide fan voting begins immediately to determine the winner. Fans are encouraged to vote via the Loweâ€™s Senior CLASS Award website through November 14.
