Doms Lands on Hermann Trophy Watch List
KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Senior Maya Doms is one of 60 NCAA Women's Division I college soccer players named to the 2022 Missouri Athletic Club Hermann Trophy Watch List.
The Hermann Trophy is the nation's highest individual honor recognizing the nation's National Player of the Year as determined by the voting of Division I coaches who are members of United Soccer Coaches.
Including Doms, nine players from the Pac-12 are included on this year's initial list. Joining Stanford's standout midfielder are UCLA's Lauren Brzykcy and Lily Reale, Washington State's Nadia Cooper and Mykiaa Minnis, Oregon's Leah Freeman, USC's Croix Bethune, Arizona State's Nicole Douglas, and Washington's Summer Yates.
Doms, a three-time all-conference pick, earned third-team All-America honors from the United Soccer Coaches a season ago. The native of Davis, Calif. started all 20 games in the midfield, playing 1,571 minutes and leading the team in goals (11) and points (25) with three game-winners. Her 11 goals ranked sixth in the Pac-12 while her 4.00 shots per game ranked fourth in the conference. Doms managed two multi-goal games last season, including a hat trick in Stanford's 7-0 rout of CSUN on August 26.
A Cardinal player has claimed three of the last five MAC Hermann trophies, with Andi Sullivan taking the award in 2017, followed by Catarina Macario becoming a back-to-back winner in 2018 and 2019. Kelley O'Hara became the first Stanford player to win the MAC Hermann Trophy at the conclusion of the 2009 season. O'Hara was followed by Christen Press (2010) and Teresa Noyola (2011) to bring Stanford's total to six winners.
Florida State's Jaelin Howell earned the honor for the second consecutive season in 2021.
The 2022 Men's Hermann Trophy Watch List will be announced on Thursday, Aug. 25. Fifteen men's players and 15 women's players become Hermann Trophy semifinalists on Nov. 30 following completion of Division I All-America voting following the fall season. Then on Dec. 7, the top three players from a final round of voting are the 2021 finalists. The 2022 winner is revealed on Jan. 6, 2023, at a ceremony at the historic Missouri Athletic Club in St. Louis, Mo.
