Clemson junior forward Robbie Robinson was honored as the nation's top player in 2019 with the MAC Hermann Trophy Friday.
Robinson compiled one of the finest seasons in program history, with the junior scoring 18 goals, contributing nine assists and tallying a nation-leading mark of 45 points. Robinson’s spectacular season also garnered him honors as First Team All-American, First Team All-South Region, ACC Offensive Player of the Year and a two-time ACC Offensive Player of the Week.
Robinson’s career at Clemson comes to a close with a total of 58 points accumulated off of 24 goals and 10 assists. Robinson’s 2019 season stats made him the nation’s outright leader in points and points per game, along with placing him in a tie for first for goals and penalty kicks. Robinson has top-25 single-season marks in Clemson's program record book for goals (tied-nineteenth) and points (tied-fourteenth).
He declared for the MLS SuperDraft recently.
Robinson is the third time a member of the Clemson program to have won the award, with Bruce Murray and Wojtek Krakowiak winning in 1987 and 1998, respectively.
