The award recognizes outstanding athletic excellence as well as high standards of academic achievement and exemplary character demonstrated on and off the field.

Stroud helped the Gaels go 8-0 in the abbreviated spring “open season” as he scored four goals and had five assists. This brought his career totals to 24 goals and 33 assists. He also maintained a B-plus average in the classroom.

Ty ran the show [for Mount St. Joseph] from his central role,” said Rich Zinkand, head coach of Calvert Hall. “He is a versatile player that can play either up top or in the midfield. He can help in different roles.”

Stroud has signed a National Letter of Intent to play soccer on scholarship at Temple University this fall. He is also now eligible to be named National Boys Player of the Year when that award is named later this month.
