[AWARDS] Akron's Darlington Nagbe won 2010 Missouri Athletic Club's Hermann Trophy as the top player in NCAA Division I men's soccer, marking the first time since 1985-86 a different player from the same school won the award.

Nagbe, who is a junior, won the award a year after classmate Teal Bunbury won the award. Bunbury turned pro and now plays for MLS's Sporting Kansas City and the U.S. national team.

Tom Kainand John Kerr Jr. claimed the award for Duke in 1985-86.

Nagbe, who hails from Lakewood, Ohio, and whose father is a former Liberian international, helped Akron capture its first national championship in any sport.
 
He started all 25 games for the Zips and scored seven goals and added a career-high 13 assists.

The first runner-up was Indiana junior forward Will Bruin followed by Louisville junior forward Colin Rolfe.
