This year’s award winners both hail from the Right to Dream Academy. Joshua Yaro, the star center back for Georgetown, is the 2014 TopDrawerSoccer Player of the Year after leading the Hoyas to an Elite Eight appearance. Yaro was a key figure in the success of the Big East program this fall.

Abu Danladi, UCLA’s sensational striker, is the 2014 TopDrawerSoccer Freshman of the Year. Danladi was one of the best forwards in all of college soccer in his debut campaign and helped the Bruins reach the championship game.
