Connecticut's O'Brian White became only the first second who had not previously resided in the United States before entering college to win the Men's Hermann Trophy.

Born in Jamaica and now residing in Scarborough, Ont., White  broke the UConn record with 23 goals and led all Division I players in goals and points (53).

White, who was presented with the trophy in ceremonies held last Friday at the Missouri Athletic Club in St. Louis, edged out Virginia Tech forward Patrick Nyarko and the 2006 MAC Hermann Trophy winner, Notre Dame forward Joseph Lapira.

White, who was also named Soccer America's 2007 Men's Player of the Year, recorded three hat tricks and the first back-to-back hat tricks in UConn history.

He enjoyed a surpassed his combined totals for his first two seasons with the Huskies. While he won Big East Rookie of the Year honors with 10 goals in 2005, he slumped to seven goals in 2006.

The junior's success made him a target of MLS clubs, but he delighted UConn fans with his announcement in mid-December that he was returning for his senior year.

The only other player to win the Men's Hermann Trophy who was not born in the United States was 1974 winner Farrukh Quraishi of Oneonta State.
