HERKIMER, NY-Herkimer College Athletic Director Donald Dutcher recently announced that men's soccer player Tyler Dobinson (Exmouth, England) has been named the 2019-2020 Herkimer College Male Athlete of the Year. Tyler is a two time starter who captained Herkimer to a Region III championship and the NJCAA national championship game this past fall.
Tyler was also named to the All Mountain Valley Conference team, First Team All-Region III, Region III All-Tournament team, National All-Tournament team, First Team NJCAA All-American and Second Team United Soccer Coaches All-American team.
