[U.S. SOCCER AWARDS] U.S. under-17 national team midfielder Luis Gil and women's national team midfielder Tobin Heath won U.S. Soccer's Young Male and Young Female Awards, respectively.

Heath played with both the U.S. U-23 national team and senior team in 2009, but her biggest triumph of 2009 was leading UNC to its 20th NCAA title. She scored five goals with 10 assists for the Tar Heels.

Gil was the youngest member of the U.S. team to compete in the 2009 Under-17 World Cup in Nigeria and is also the youngest player to win the Young Male Athlete of the Year Award since Freddy Adu in 2003.

Gil was outstanding in midfield, confirming the abilities that have attracted the attention of foreign clubs since he entered U.S. Soccer residency.
