Gators sophomore forward Deanne Rose was named to the MAC Hermann Trophy watch list on Thursday.
Rose led Florida in goals (9) and points (21) as a freshman in 2017 and earned the SEC’s Freshman of the Year honor. Rose also earned a spot on the All-SEC First Team.
The Alliston, Ontario native is a member of the Canadian National Team and participated in the 2016 Olympics. Rose helped Team Canada secure a bronze medal by becoming the youngest goal scorer in Olympic play.
The MAC Hermann Trophy has been awarded to the top collegiate soccer player since 1988 (for women). Florida has never had a winner, however in 1998 Danielle Fotopoulos earned the NSCAA Player of the Year award. In 2002, the Hermann Trophy, NSCAA POY, and MAC POY, merged to create the MAC Hermann Trophy.
The award winner will be announced at a banquet on January 4, 2019 at the Missouri Atheltic Club in St. Louis.
