Minnesota sophomore Taylor Uhl has been named a finalist for the 2012 Soccer News Net College Boot Award, recognizing the women’s college player of the year. Uhl is one of 37 finalists nominated for the award, receiving an at-large selection.
Taylor Uhl was named to the All-Big Ten First Team after leading the conference in goals, goals per game, points, and points per game through the regular season. She also ranked second in shots and third in assists. In total, Uhl collected 21 goals and nine assists on the season, finishing only two points shy of Jennifer Walek's single-season record of 53 points. Adding her 21 goals this year to her 15 as a freshman, she already ranks fifth on Minnesota's all-time leaderboard with 36 career goals. At the end of postseason play, she held the top spot in the nation in points (51) and tied for first in goals.
While accomplishing these marks, Uhl has set new records for Gopher Women’s Soccer, notching three hat tricks in a single season, for a school-best of five in her career. She also set the record for consecutive matches with a goal (nine) and a point (13). Uhl was slected to the NSCAA/Continental Tire All-America Third Team, becoming the first Gopher NSCAA All-American since 1997.
The editors of each of the six sites in Soccer News Net nominated up to four local players for the award, each of which will be eligible for the regional player of the year award. The nominations included athletes playing at colleges within each site's coverage area, as well as athletes from the area playing collegiately elsewhere in the country. Nine additional at-large selections rounded out the nominations.
Online fan voting will account for 40% of the total toward the award. The remaining 60% of the vote will be cast by the Soccer News Net editorial staff. The winner of the popular vote will receive the Soccer News Net Supporter's Choice Award.
