[AWARDS] U.S. under-18 forward Luis Rendon, who attends Cosby High School in Midlothian, Va., and plays for  FC Richmond Magic, has been named the 2010-11 Gatorade National Boys Soccer Player of the Year.

Rendon, a 5-foot-10 junior, scored 16 goals and added 13 assists to lead Cosby to a 13-0 record and the Dominion District regular-season title entering its regular-season finale. He already owns the school record with 38 career goals.

He arrived in the United States from Colombia at age 9 and earned his American citizenship in February, 2010.

"Luis' ability to score goals is amazing," said Dave Amsler, Rendon's club coach with FC Richmond Magic. "He has a calming effect on the game and his skill level is very high. He's just not your typical American player. He's a very elusive player. He just brings something totally different to the game."

Rendon has verbally committed to play soccer on an athletic scholarship at Duke University beginning in the fall of 2012.
