MAC Herman Trophy Watch List Show | Preseason Top XI Teams

herman_trophyKANSAS CITY, KS – Washington’s Spencer Richey and Cristian Roldan were two of the 32 NCAA Division I players tagged as the leading players to watch this season that could vie for the 2014 MAC Hermann Trophy. Stanford’s Jordan Morris, from Mercer Island, is also on the list.

The MAC Hermann Trophy is the most prestigious individual award in NCAA soccer presented annually to one male and one female athlete. The winners will be announced Friday, Jan. 9, 2015, at the trophy presentation banquet at the Missouri Athletic Club in St. Louis.

Richey was on the list last season for what was supposed to be his senior season, but instead took a medical redshirt after breaking his leg in the fourth game of year. He returns for a fifth year now 100 percent healthy. Recently, Richey was named the nation’s second-best goalkeeper by

Roldan burst onto the scene last year, being named the Pac-12 Freshman of the Year and the National Freshman of the Year by Soccer America. He scored seven goals and distributed five assists. In that same poll, Roldan was one of four midfielders named to the First Team.

Near the end of the collegiate regular season, NCAA Division I coaches that are NSCAA members will vote on their top choices and the list will be narrowed down to the top 15 players. College soccer fans will also have the opportunity to participate in the selection process, by voting for their favorite semifinalist in November at the MAC Hermann Trophy website, managed by LockerDome.

From that pool of 30, three finalists will be chosen for the award. The winners will be announced in January.

Washington men's soccer defeats Stanford 1-0 in the third round of the NCAA tournament.
