Clint Dempsey has been voted the U.S. Soccer Federation's top male athlete for the second straight year. The Tottenham midfielder also won this honor in 2007. He joined midfielder Landon Donovan (2003, 2004, 2009, 2010) and goalkeeper Kasey Keller (1997, 1999, 2005) as the only players to win three times or more. Dempsey had a team-high six goals for the U.S. this year, including five in World Cup qualifying. Rubio Rubin was voted young male athlete of the year after scoring eight goals for the Under-17 team. Felicia Schroeder was picked as disabled athlete of the year, a new award, after scoring four goals at the World Deaf Football Championships. Online votes counted for half the total, with the rest from media and USSF representatives.
