Potomac Soccer Wire and Korrio are proud to announce a new accolade for promising young soccer players in the Mid-Atlantic region, the “Korrio Players to Watch” award, set to debut next week and continue monthly thereafter.
Intended to recognize those who produce notable achievements or display exceptional talent, the award is open to boys’ and girls’ players ages 14 and older, including those who have already begun their college careers. Selection criteria may include individual and team accomplishments, as well as meaningful off-field activities or evidence that the player has overcome significant personal challenges to attain success in the game.
“Korrio is extremely proud to recognize the Mid-Atlantic region’s up-and-coming soccer talents,” said Kristina O’Connell, Korrio’s Vice President of Marketing. “Everything we do revolves around the player. Our product is designed to help players, coaches and parents spend less time on administrative work and more time on the field having fun. Teaming up with Potomac Soccer Wire to create this award was a natural fit.”
Coaches, club officials, fans, parents and fellow players can nominate worthy candidates for the Korrio Players to Watch honor via an online form at potomacsoccerwire.com/players.
PSW staff will conduct the selection process and announce award winners via the Potomac Soccer Wire, an email newsletter delivered to over 13,000 of the region’s soccer community on Tuesdays and Fridays, and its online home at potomacsoccerwire.com.
“Our area continues to be one of the nation’s soccer hotbeds and many of our young players are on their way to achieving great things,” said Chris Hummer, Executive Editor at Potomac Soccer Wire.
“The Korrio Players to Watch award will recognize their achievements in club and high school competition, not to mention their future potential at the collegiate and professional levels and beyond. We look forward to receiving nominations from the public and can’t wait to get started.”
