KANSAS CITY, Mo. (Aug. 1, 2019) – United Soccer Coaches and the Missouri Athletic Club announced today the 2019 MAC Hermann Trophy Watch Lists.

The MAC Hermann Trophy, presented by World Wide Technology, is the most prestigious individual award in college soccer and is presented annually to the most outstanding male and female players of the year. This year’s winners will be announced in January 2020 at the Missouri Athletic Club in St. Louis.

Six semifinalists from a year ago lead a group of 36 players on the men's watch list. The returning semifinalists are Michigan State senior Giuseppe Barone, Stanford senior Tanner Beason, Michigan senior Jack Hallahan, UCF senior Cal Jennings, Wake Forest senior Bruno Lapa and Duke senior Daniele Proch. Sixteen of the 36 players on the watch list were United Soccer Coaches All-Americans last year.

A total of 61 players are included on the Women's Watch List, headlined by 2018 Hermann Trophy Winner Catarina Macario of Stanford. Macario will be a junior this season. 2017 finalist Jessie Fleming of UCLA and five semifinalists from 2018 are also on the watch list; Penn State junior Samantha Coffey, Santa Clara senior Kelcie Hedge, Penn State senior Kaleigh Riehl, North Carolina junior Alessia Russo, UCLA junior Ashley Sanchez, and Texas A&M senior Ally Watt. Twenty-nine of the players on the list were All-Americans a season ago.

The MAC Hermann Trophy Watch Lists are compiled by members of the United Soccer Coaches Men’s and Women’s NCAA Division I All-America Committees. Fifteen semifinalists will be named for both the men’s and women’s MAC Hermann Trophy near the end of the college season based on voting by NCAA Division I coaches and from those candidates, three finalists will ultimately be placed on the ballot for the coveted award.

ST. LOUIS, Mo. (Jan. 4, 2019) – Indiana University senior defender Andrew Gutman (Hinsdale, Ill.) and Stanford University sophomore forward Catarina Macario (San Diego, Calif.) were presented the 2018 MAC Hermann Trophy on Friday at the Missouri Athletic Club’s annual banquet.

The MAC Hermann Trophy, a 10-pound crystal soccer ball awarded annually since 1967, honors the United Soccer Coaches National Players of the Year in NCAA Division I men’s and women’s soccer based on voting conducted by NCAA Division I coaches.

Gutman contributed career-highs with 11 goals and nine assists for 31 points in 2018, leading the Hoosiers in goals and points. The unanimous Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year anchored an IU defense that allowed just 13 goals over 24 games en route to a College Cup semifinal appearance. He capped his four-year career with 20 goals and 17 assists.

Runners-up for the men’s award were University of Denver senior forward Andre Shinyashiki (Sao Paulo, Brazil) and University of Kentucky junior forward JJ Williams (Montgomery, Ala.).

Macario tallied a team-high 14 goals and 36 points in 2018 to help the Cardinal back to the College Cup semifinals. The Pac 12 Forward of the Year led the conference in game-winning goals and finished tied for ninth in the country in total points. She is a two-time First Team All-American and Pac 12 Forward of the Year in her first two collegiate seasons.

Runners-up for the women’s award were Stanford senior midfielder Jordan DiBiasi (Highlands Ranch, Colo.) and Georgetown University senior forward Caitlin Farrell (Wallingford, Conn.).
