The award recognizes not only athletic excellence, but high standards of academic achievement and exemplary character on and off the field.

Hoffman-Johnson is now a finalist for the national player of the year award, which will be chosen in May.

Hoffman-Johnson had 28 goals and 14 assists last fall, leading the Yachtsmen (16-0-2) to the Class B championship.

An All-American selection by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America in 2008 and 2009, he’s also been named to the All-State team each of the last three seasons, and has been honored as the Class B player of the year for two consecutive seasons.

Hoffman-Johnson has maintained an A-minus average in the classroom. He has volunteered locally as a mentor to elementary school students and on behalf of a program for physically challenged youth soccer players.
