Now she has.
Andrews on Wednesday became the first athlete to repeat as winner of the Gatorade National Girls’ Soccer Player of the Year award, an honor established in 1985. She received the 2012-13 award during a surprise assembly at Milford High School, where she has excelled for four years in academics and community service, as well as athletics.
“Everybody in this room knows what a special girl Morgan is,” O’Reilly said. “She is not only an incredible athletic, she is extremely hard working, she is humble and she is a leader.”
“Because of her athletic excellence, academic achievement and exemplary character, Morgan truly embodies the values we seek to acknowledge and reward through the Gatorade Player of the Year program,” Laroche said.
“You’re my friends — like I said, my dance partners, always, and my sisters, always,” she said.
She’d already made a statement about her feelings for her another brother, Michael, forgoing a trip to Switzerland with the national 20-under team to serve as bridesmaid in his wedding on June 1.
