Gahanna senior midfielder Wil Trapp was selected the 2010 high school boys soccer national Player of the Year by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America.

Trapp led the Lions to a 19-1-1 record last season and a 22-0-1 record in 2009 when Gahanna captured the Division I state championship.

Trapp scored the winner in a shootout in the 2009 championship against Cleveland St. Ignatius. Last season, the Lions reached a regional final before falling to Olentangy Orange 2-1 in two overtimes for their first loss in 44 games.

Trapp was first-team all-state the past two seasons and was the Division I Player of the Year this season. He was the ThisWeek Super 12 captain the past two seasons, as well as first-team all-OCC Ohio Division and the league's Player of the Year as a junior and senior.

Trapp, who will play at Akron next season, also is a member of the U.S. U-18 men's national team. He scored 19 goals as a senior and was the catalyst for a team that had lost 14 players from its championship season. As a junior, Trapp scored nine goals and had 12 assists at forward.

Akron won the NCAA men's national championship last fall.
