Bobby Warshaw was honored in 2009 with his second first-team Pac-10 All-Academic selection and also picked second-team CoSIDA ESPN The Magazine Academic All-American. Warshaw maintains a 3.57 GPA in political science.

Character

After playing forward and leading Stanford in scoring in 2008, Warshaw accepted a move to central defense in 2009. Despite the move, Warshaw still led the Cardinal in scoring as a junior. He is a team captain this season. “Bobby is the hardest working player on a team that has really committed as a group and as individuals to being the most hard working and fittest team in the country,” coach Bret Simon said. “He is driven and is always one of the first players on the field before training and one of the last to leave.”

Community

Warshaw volunteers at Lucille Packard Children’s Hospital in Palo Alto. On campus, he’s one of the originators of “Kotsyville,” the student superfan group named after men’s volleyball coach John Kotsy. The group was given a lot of credit for the atmosphere created that helped Stanford to the 2010 NCAA Championship. He also volunteers with the Cardinal Council for Stanford Youth Olympics, spends time speaking with youth soccer teams about responsibility and accountability and helps with Stanford summer soccer camps and fall clinics.

Competition

Warshaw begins his senior season on the Missouri Athletic Club Hermann Trophy Watch List after becoming a semifinalist for the award as a junior. Last year Warshaw was also honored as a first-team NSCAA All-American as well as a first-team All-Pac 10 selection. Warshaw led Stanford in goals for the third straight season while picking up second-team All-American honors from TopDrawerSoccer.com and helping the Cardinal reach the round of 16 in the NCAA tournament.
