St. Louis, Mo. - United Soccer Coaches announced on Tuesday the 15 men's semifinalists and 15 women's semifinalists in consideration for the 2017 MAC Hermann Trophy, based on voting by NCAA Division I soccer coaches. Tucker Bone is one-of-four non-seniors to be added to the list and is the only player to represent the Western Athletic Conference.
The MAC Hermann Trophy, the most coveted individual honor in NCAA Division I soccer, has been awarded annually since 1967. Most recently, Ian Harkes (Wake Forest) received the award for outstanding intercollegiate performance during his senior seasons in 2016.
Three men's finalists will be named on December 8 in conjunction with the Men's College Cup semifinals in Philadelphia. The 2017 MAC Hermann Trophy banquet will be held at the Missouri Athletic Club in St. Louis on January 5, 2018 to formally announce this year's winners.
