As the honors continue to pile up, it becomes more difficult to find the superlatives to describe Gahanna Lincoln High School senior midfielder Wil Trapp.

As the honors continue to pile up, it becomes more difficult to find the superlatives to describe Gahanna Lincoln High School senior midfielder Wil Trapp.

While the Lions did not repeat as Division I state champions this season, Trapp earned several repeat awards after leading his team to a 19-1-1 record. Trapp was selected the ThisWeek Super 12 captain for the second consecutive season, making him the first repeat winner in the team's 13 years.

He also repeated as district and OCC-Ohio Division Player of the Year. He again was first-team all-state, this time being honored as the state Player of the Year.

"All the awards are nice, but the biggest goal I had was the one I shared with my teammates and we weren't able to accomplish that one," Trapp said, alluding to the bid to repeat as state champion. The Lions lost to Olentangy Orange 2-1 in double overtime in a regional final on Nov. 6.

Trapp, who scored 19 goals, helped the Lions post a 39-1-1 record in his two seasons after attending the Brad Friedel Premier Soccer Academy in Lorain as a freshman and sophomore.

Trapp scored the clinching goal in the shootout in the 2009 state championship, as the Lions beat Cleveland St. Ignatius 1-0 (4-3 in shootout). He was a Parade All-American last season and was selected all-regional and All-American by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America.

"William Trapp is one of the best players to ever come through Gahanna," said 15th-year coach Dwayne Marshall, whose team won its seventh consecutive league title and its fourth district title. "His skill and vision are superior and his knowledge of the game is extraordinary. As a student-athlete, he has excelled in the classroom. He carries a 4.0 GPA."

Trapp has committed to play for the University of Akron and is awaiting paperwork before signing.
