St. Paul's standout Colin Hanley was named the Gatorade Louisiana Boys Soccer Player of the Year on Monday.
Hanley is the third St. Paul's player to win the award and is now eligible to be named Gatorade's National Player of the Year, which will be announced in May.
The 6-foot, 175-pound senior goalkeeper recorded 21 shutouts this past season, leading the Wolves (31-0-3) to the Division 1 state championship. Hanley posted a 0.3 goals-against average and surrendered none in St. Paul’s five postseason games. A first team All-State selection, he was also named the Defensive MVP of Division 1.
Hanley has signed a National Letter of Intent to play soccer on scholarship at Niagara University in New York State this fall.
Hanley joins recent Gatorade Louisana Boys Soccer Players of the Year Andrew Malinich (2013-14, Lusher Charter School), Ethan Judice (2012-13, Lafayette High School), Phillip Hicks (2011-12, Jesuit High School), Adrian McInnis (2010–11, Saint Paul's School), Steven Cabos (2009-10, Jesuit High School), Patrick Mullins (2008–09, Jesuit High School), Nick Flowers (2007-08, Caddo Parish Magnet) and Andrew Mullins (2006-07, Jesuit High School) among the state’s list of former award winners.
