Trinity Rodman ROY

Washington Spirit forward Trinity Rodman was voted the 2021 Chipotle U.S. Soccer Young Female Player of the Year.

Forward Trinity Rodman has earned the 2021 Chipotle U.S. Soccer Young Female Player of the Year award following a standout rookie season for the Washington Spirit.

Rodman, the No. 2 overall pick in the 2021 National Women's Soccer League draft, helped lead the Spirit to the NWSL championship in her first professional season.

"It’s an honor to receive this award from U.S. Soccer and our amazing fanbase," Rodman said. "This year was a journey for me both mentally and physically as I settled into my new life as a professional."

"I want to thank my family, teammates, coaching and medical staffs for everything they have done for me on and off the field," Rodman continued. "It truly takes a village. I am so incredibly proud of what my Spirit teammates and I accomplished this season, and I would be humbled to get an opportunity to play for the U.S. again and represent our country in 2022."

Rodman, 19, was a major part of the U.S. Soccer U-20 cycle in 2020 and played in the 2018 FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup.

In her first NWSL season, Rodman netted six goals -- highlighted by two game-winning goals -- and dished six assists in 25 games. She was also selected as the 2021 NWSL Rookie of the Year.

Following a third-place finish in the regular season, the Washington Spirit defeated the North Carolina Courage, OL Reign and Chicago Red Stars in the playoffs to claim the NWSL championship.

The Spirit played a portion of their 2021 home schedule at Segra Field in Leesburg.
