Player of the Year
Eric Hoglund
Hayfield, Sr.

Named the Virginia AAA Northern Region player of the year, Hoglund is dependable and elegant with the ball at his feet and a model captain. He was the foundation of Hayfield's soccer renaissance, as the Hawks captured area's toughest district, the Patriot, equaling their victory total from previous three seasons.

Coach of the Year
Kurt Kuykendall

Already recognized for a cerebral, professional approach that guaranteed competitive teams, the ninth-year coach led a team that surpassed expectations this spring. In his final season, the former professional goalkeeper guided Madison (11-4-3) to its first district title, shutting out eight opponents with a unique system that made the most of its players' abilities.

MF Sean Hinkle, Chancellor, Sr.: Dominating and dynamic offensive presence proved nearly unstoppable. Future Virginia Cavalier had 17 goals and 12 assists, leading Chargers to 15-1 regular season.
MF Ryan Jenkins, Osbourn Park, Jr.: A smooth playmaker with dexterity, vision and grit, Jenkins deftly engineered Yellow Jackets' peerless possession game. Accounted for over half of team's scoring with three goals, five assists.
F Mike Davis, Herndon, Sr.: Tenacious, clever striker scored 13 goals, sparking unheralded Hornets' run to Concorde District championship and regional semifinals. Scored late winner in district final. Bound for Methodist College.
