BLACKSBURG, Va. – ODU senior forward Tim Hopkinson has been selected Player of the Year in the State of Virginia by the Virginia Sports Information Directors (VASID). Joining him on first team was Monarchs senior  defender Jason Gaylord.

Joining Hopkinson in the major awards were Virginia’s George Gelnovatch and Jordan Allen were voted Coach and Rookie of the Year, respectively.
 
Hopkinson, a second team All-American by the NSCAA and College Soccer News was a first team NSCAA All-South Region selection and semifinalist for the prestigious MAC Hermann Trophy where he was the top vote getter in the fan poll. Hopkinson was Conference USA’s Offensive Player of the Year, and was selected to the All-Tournament team.

A first team All-C-USA selection, Hopkinson led C-USA in total goals and total points and scored his second career hat trick with 3 goals vs. VMI. The team co-captain was selected C-USA Player of the Week on Sept. 23rd and on Oct. 14th, and NSCAA National Player of the Week on Oct. 15th. He ranks 11th nationally in total goals with 12, and 15th nationally in total points with 28.

He also had a league best six game-winning goals this season.

ODU defensive leader Jason Gaylord was also selected to the first team All-State squad.

Gelnovatch led the Cavaliers to another College Cup appearance. Under his leadership, the team achieved a 13-6-5 record, including marquis wins over teams such as UCONN, Wake Forest, Marquette, and eventual National Champions Notre Dame.
