Classroom

A management science and engineering major, Foster Langsdorf has a 3.24 GPA and is a two-time Pac-12 All-Academic Honorable Mention selection (2015, 2016).

Character

A tireless worker, Langsdorf is the offensive engine behind the nation’s most successful program. Stanford is the winningest program in the country by percentage since 2014 with an overall record of 50-9-11 (.793) and has won back-to-back national championships and three consecutive Pac-12 titles.

Community

Langsdorf is a Partners for Academic Excellence (PAE) mentor at Stanford, assisting student-athletes in managing their demanding schedules and also helping prepare them for future employment opportunities through professional development. Mentors facilitate weekly small group meetings with a wide-ranging curriculum.

Competition

The reigning Co-Pac-12 Player of the Year and a second team All-American in 2016, Langsdorf’s career-high 15 goals as a junior tied for eighth in program history, were the most for a Cardinal since 1981 and the highest total in the conference since 2011. He ended his campaign fourth nationally in total goals, 10th in goals per game (0.65) and led the country in game-winning goals (8). With 29 career scores, Langsdorf is tied for ninth in program history, tied for ninth among active NCAA players and needs one more to become the first Cardinal to reach the 30-goal mark since the mid-1980s. He’s on this year’s MAC Hermann Trophy Watch List along with the Top Drawer Soccer Preseason Best XI Second Team, the College Soccer News Preseason All-Amerca First Team and the All-Pac-12 Preseason Team. As of nomination time, Langsdorf had six goals in five games so far this season, tied for tops in the country.
