2015 MAC Hermann Trophy watch lists announced by NSCAA

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (via NSCAA) – Thirty men and 28 women from NCAA Division I schools around the country have been marked as potential contenders for the 2015 Missouri Athletic Club’s (MAC) Hermann Trophy.

The MAC Hermann Trophy is the most prestigious individual award in college soccer presented annually to one male and one female athlete. The winners will be announced Friday, Jan. 8, 2016, at the trophy presentation banquet at the Missouri Athletic Club in St. Louis.

The lists are compiled by the NSCAA Men’s and Women’s NCAA Division I All-America Committees, based on analysis of returning All-America and All-Region players, as well as any prominent newcomers.

A total of 13 men’s players that earned 2014 NSCAA All-America nods were named to this year’s Watch List. Additionally, six of those All-Americans appeared as 2014 MAC Hermann semifinalists: Creighton junior Fabien Herbers (Ahaus, Germany); Notre Dame senior Patrick Hodan (Brookfield, Wis.); Stanford junior Jordan Morris (Mercer Island, Wash.); Charlotte senior Kyle Parker (Marvin, N.C.); Indiana junior Tanner Thompson (Loomis, Calif.); and Georgetown junior Joshua Yaro (Santa Barbara, Calif.).

On the women’s side, 13 NSCAA All-Americans from 2014 are also on this Watch List, including four who were named 2014 semifinalists. Texas Tech forward Janine Beckie (Highlands Ranch, Colo.), West Virginia junior Kadeisha Buchanan (Brampton, Ontario), Virginia senior Makenzy Doniak (Chino Hills, Calif.), and Florida junior Savannah Jordan (Fayetteville, Ga.) are returning familiar faces.

Near the end of the collegiate regular season, NCAA Division I coaches whose programs are current NSCAA College Services members will vote on their top choices and the lists 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, six finalists (three men, three women) will be chosen for the award. The winners will be announced in January.
