Florida State's Mami Yamaguchi won the 2007 Missouri Athletic Club's Hermann Trophy, edging UCLA's Lauren Cheney and Texas A&M's Ashlee Pistorius.
Yamaguchi is the first Seminole player to claim the top individual honor in women's soccer and only the third foreigner. She led the country in points (66), while finishing second in goals (24) and assists (18). Yamaguchi was recognized as the ACC Offensive Player of the Year and earned her first NSCAA/adidas first-team All-America honor.
Yamaguchi led the Seminoles to the national championship game for the first time in school history. In the 2007 NCAA Tournament, she paced the Seminoles with three goals and eight assists. Her eight assists rank as both a single-season and an all-time postseason school record.
