It seems that the recipient of the herman award is usually determined by statistics and not actual ability. I am sure that you all have seen winners of the award who you thought should not even be in the running because all they did was convert the work that their teamates did into goals, while they camped out in a safe position which did not require them to run. Other hard working players are overlooked because they are forced to exhaust themselves while doing two or three other players jobs. I have never seen a recipient a this award play on a team that doesn't have atleast one other all american caliber player to help him look good. My opinion is that the winner of this award should be determined by things other than just stats. Look at his teamates, his opponents, his work rate, his knowledge of the game. Don't rule someone out because they didn't score 5 goals against some no name university. just my opinion.
