Two Mustangs Named To MAC Hermann Trophy Watch List

DALLAS, Texas (SMU) – United Soccer Coaches and the Missouri Athletic Club (MAC) announced on Thursday that Gabriel Costa and Papa Ndoye have been named to the 2020-21 Men's MAC Hermann Trophy Watch List. The award, presented by World Wide Technology, is presented annually to the most outstanding male and female collegiate players of the year.

Costa is one of nine United Soccer Coaches All-Americans on the list that features 34 athletes. The junior from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil was recently named the American Athletic Conference Preseason Offensive Player of the Year after earning the Co-Midfielder of the Year honor in 2019. He helped the Mustangs to a conference tournament title and NCAA Quarterfinal appearance last season with nine goals and 11 assists.

Ndoye will play his first season on the Hilltop during 2020-21 after transferring from Long Island University. The sophomore forward from Senegal led his team at LIU with nine goals, with three of them being game-winners. Ndoye was the Northeast Conference Rookie of the Year and was named to both the NEC First Team and All-Rookie Team. He also was selected for the United Soccer Coaches All-Northeast Region First Team.

The Mustangs have had one previous Hermann Trophy winner in Luchi Gonzalez, who won the award in 2001 in addition to the MAC Player of the Year honor. In 2019, Eddie Munjoma was named a semifinalist for the MAC Hermann Trophy.

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 at the end of April based on voting by Division I coaches and from those candidates, three finalists will be determined for the coveted award. Winners will be announced May 27 at the 2021 MAC Hermann Trophy Press Conference and Banquet taking place at the Missouri Athletic Club in St. Louis, Mo.
