2016 MAC Hermann Trophy Finalist: Ian Harkes, Wake Forest University

Ian Harkes, one of three senior captains for the Demon Deacons, has started all 78 games he’s played in as a Demon Deacon in his four years with the program. This season, Harkes has played 19 of the team’s 21 games and is second on the team with four goals, a new career-high for the central midfielder after scoring four over the course of his first three seasons. Harkes scored the first goal of the ACC Finals on Nov. 13 in Charleston, S.C., when he took a pass from Luis Argudo and one-timed his shot from distance past the goalkeeper into the upper-left corner to get the Deacs on the board.
