ATH: Tim Howard

Howard Wins Male Athlete Of The Year

US National Team goalkeeper Tim Howard has been named the US Soccer Male Athlete of the Year. Howard had a superb 2008 in goal for the United States, with three consecutive shutouts in CONCACAF World Cup Qualifying. Fellow National Team member Sacha Kljestan was named Young Male Athlete of the Year.

“It's a wonderful honor to accept this Male Athlete of the Year award,” said Howard. “I know down the years there have been some wonderful, very talented players who have won it, so to be considered among a list of those players is special and prestigious. It really humbles me to be a part of that group.”

For the women, Carli Lloyd won Female Athlete of the Year and Kristie Mewis was named Young Female Athlete of the Year.
