In the Soccerama thread, there was a discussion about freshmen players. It was mentioned that just because they start varsity, does not make them an impact player. Additionally, it was mentioned that freshmen impact players are very rare.
So instead of putting all these parameters on what makes a standout freshman, how about we just list out some freshmen players who are worthy of recognition.
1. St Henry's Ben Durrough--can score, can defend, has maturity and soccer smarts, hustles, plays varsity, and yes--he is a freshman impact player.
Who do you have?
