IU senior defender Andrew Gutman won the 2019 MAC Hermann Trophy on Friday following his stellar senior season in Bloomington.
Gutman earned the award, which is given to college soccer’s best overall player, after leading the Hoosiers to two Big Ten Championships and the College Cup. He led the team in scoring with 11 goals and added nine assists along the way.
The winner of the MAC Hermann Trophy is based on a voting system by NCAA Division I coaches.
He is the eighth Hoosier to win the award, dating back to 1967, and the first since Danny O’Rourke in 2004.
“To Indiana University, thank you for allowing me to achieve my goals, academically and athletically,” Gutman said after receiving the award.
The Hermann Trophy now stands at the top of many accolades that Gutman has accumulated this season. He’s received multiple player of the week awards from Top Drawer and College Soccer News, and he was named First Team All-Big Ten and the Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year on top of being an All-American.
