Morgan Andrews of Milford, N.H. was named the Gatorade National Girls' Soccer Player of the Year for the second year in a row Wednesday. Andrews was surprised by the Gatorade staff, her teammates, coaches and her family when she was awarded the trophy by former Gatorade Player of the Year, Heather O’Reilly.
The Gatorade National Player of the Year is recognized for leadership on and off the field. Andrews is nothing short of a leader. She started a charity called Kicks for Cans with her mother about two-and-a-half years ago. Their motto is, “feed the goal.” Children are asked to bring in canned goods to a two-hour soccer clinic. The clinics happen every few months and canned goods are brought to SHARE, Milford’s local food pantry.
