HUNTINGTON, W.Va. – Marshall men’s soccer redshirt junior midfielder Trevor Starcher has been recognized for his performance in the classroom and on the field, receiving the Cam Henderson Scholarship last Saturday at the 79th Annual Marshall Alumni Awards Banquet.

Starcher, of Hurricane, W.Va., has a 3.88 GPA and majors in Marketing and Management, with a minor in Entrepreneurship. In 2015, Starcher started in the final nine of his 17 games played, scoring the game-winning goal against Old Dominion, which helped Marshall advance to the Conference USA Tournament. Starcher also provided two assists. The Herd advanced to C-USA Championship game.

Starcher also has been recognized by Conference USA this month, with the 2016 C-USA Academic Medal and a place on the Commissioner’s Honor Roll. Starcher has received both awards in each of his four years at Marshall.

The Cam Henderson Scholarship was established by the Marshall University Alumni Association in 1972 to recognize and honor Marshall students who excel in both academic and athletic endeavors. Athletes must meet the criteria of a 3.0 GPA or higher, lettering in a Marshall sport, displaying responsible leadership and good character and be involved in campus or community activities.

"Winning this award puts into perspective the amount of dedication, hard work, and time I have put into the community, university, academics, and athletics," Starcher said. "I am very honored and humbled to not only receive this award, but to be able to represent Marshall University and the men's soccer program."

Herd coach Bob Gray praised Starcher’s effort and accomplishments.

“Trevor is the epitome of what you want in a student-athlete,” Gray said. “He gives 100 percent in whatever he does and it shows both on the field and in the classroom. He has a way of also motivating his teammates with his work ethic and refusal to lose. I know that when he is on the field he will win his share of 50/50 balls, which equates to us getting into the attack more often. I am very proud of Trevor. I have known him since he was 12 and he will be sorely missed when he completes his eligibility this fall.”
