  • Writer's pictureBenton Player of the Year 

Updated: Oct 28, 2020

Despite the untimely conclusion of the team’s season in the Eastern Conference Finals, Louisville City had a great season and much to be proud of. Along with breaking in the team’s new home, Lynn Family Stadium, there were many wins in the abbreviated season and some brilliant play all across the pitch. From the top of the attack, all the way to in-between the sticks, Lou City fans were treated to some incredible individual performances. To commemorate these efforts, a poll was conducted to allow fans to select the Player of the Year. This poll not only awards the POTY honors, but it would also allow for that winner to select a local charity to be the focus of fundraising for the month of November.

After several responses (thank you to all who voted), a winner has been selected. I am happy to announce that Cameron Lancaster has won the 2020 Player of the Year! Cam served as the lifeblood of the Lou City attack. With 12 goals to his name in the 2020 campaign, he not only led the team but tallied the third most goals in the USL. He gave us many memorable moments on the pitch this season, including that crowd-pleasing backheel.

Placing second and third was Sean Totsch and Napo Matsoso. Sean had his best season to date with the team. With one goal and one assist to his name, he earned a player rating of 7.19 according to FotMob. His efforts helped to contribute to only 0.74 goals against per match. Napo enjoyed a breakout season, particularly after his move from midfield to the wing. Along with his three goals and two assists, his incredible ball work won over the fanbase.

Congratulations to Cam for racking up yet another win this season! With his POTY selection, he has selected the Coalition for the Homeless as the charity of focus.

Fundly campaign has been setup for this initiative. I have personally pledged $100, but I hope that we can raise much more than that. Let’s show our local community the quality of character that makes up the Louisville City fan base! No contribution is too small. Over the course of November, I will continue to share and promote this effort, particularly via social media. A “like”, “share”, and a “retweet” can go a long way spreading the word!
