Cardinal soccer players make Hermann Trophy watch list


Stanford junior goalkeeper Jane Campbell and sophomore midfielder Andi Sullivan were named to the watch list for the Missouri Athletic Club's Hermann Trophy, the highest honor in collegiate soccer.

The Cardinal is one of five teams in the nation to have multiple representatives on the watch list, which consists of 28 women's soccer players.

Stanford men's team members Jordan Morris and Brandon Vincent were named to the men's watch list making Stanford the only school in the country to have multiple representatives on both lists.

Campbell, a psychology major, registered 14 shutouts in 2014 to tie for the second-most in Stanford single-season history and tied for 16th in NCAA Division I history. She earned a 19-2-3 record, boasting a 0.59 goals-against average and .794 save percentage with 54 saves on the year.

Sullivan made an immediate impact in her debut season, controlling the midfield as a key distributor to the offense and significant contributor in the defensive end.

She was a NSCAA All-Pacific Region second team selection and named to the All-Pac-12 first team. Sullivan was named the Pac-12 Freshman of the Year and the National Freshman of the Year.

The duo were centerpieces to a Stanford team that registered 17 shutouts to tie for the second-most in program history. They helped lead the Cardinal to nine consecutive shutouts to start the 2014 season – the most shutouts to start a season in Stanford history.

Stanford has had three winners in the past six years and 14 Cardinal over the past decade have made the watch list or been semifinalists.

In 2011, Paly grad Teresa Noyola became the third consecutive Stanford player to win the Hermann Trophy, following Christen Press in 2010 and Kelley O'Hara in 2009. With Noyola's victory, Stanford became the first to have three different winners in as many years.

Morris, who has capped five times for the U.S. Men's National Team, has become the face of college soccer in the past year.

In November 2014 he became the first active collegian since 1995 to appear for the USMNT when he came on in the 76th minute in a friendly against Ireland in Dublin.

On April 15, 2015 in San Antonio, Texas, Morris started and scored for the United States against Mexico, becoming the first college player to score for the USA since September 1992.

A 2014 MAC Hermann Trophy semifinalist as a sophomore, Morris started all 15 games in which he played last season for Stanford tallying four goals, 14 points and a team-high six assists.

Vincent returns to The Farm for his senior campaign after captaining the Cardinal to its best season in a decade in 2014.

In addition to receiving first team All-America honors, he was also the Pac-12's Defensive Player of the Year, an All-Pac-12 first team selection and earned his second consecutive Pac-12 All-Academic honorable mention nod.

Precipitated by a move to left back prior to the season, Vincent exploded offensively while championing Stanford's stout defense. He led the team and was tied for 13th in the conference with six goals after entering 2014 with just one goal in his first 38 career matches.
