Given annually to the nation’s top player, the winner of the award will be named Dec. 8, at the College Cup in Dallas, Texas.
Lindsey was one of two players added to the original list of 13 candidates. Laura Schott of California was the other player added.

Lindsey scored a goal in the Cavaliers 1-1 tie with the Gators on Sept. 23, while Wambach was held scoreless. Lindsey had two goals against BYU on Oct. 4, including a game-winner in overtime, while Cramer was also held scoreless.
