[AWARDS]U.S. Soccer has named the finalists in five categories -- Male, Female, Young Male, Young Female and Disabled Athletes of the Year -- for its annual Athlete of the Year awards.

Two previous winners are included in the Male Athlete of the Year finalists: goalkeeper Tim Howard (2008) and forward Clint Dempsey (2007, 2011 and 2012).

The Female Athlete of the Year finalists feature three previous winners: midfielder Carli Lloyd(2008), forward Abby Wambach (2003, 2004, 2007, 2010 and 2011) and last year's winner Alex Morgan.

Young Male Athlete of the Years can only win the award once in his or her career.

Online fan votes for the Athlete of the Year awards are equivalent to 50 percent of the total votes. The other 50 percent will be represented by votes compiled from members of the national media and U.S. Soccer representatives (from national team coaches to the national board of directors).
