This award goes along with Clemmensen, a senior, recent recognition as the Gatorade Arizona Boys Soccer Player of the Year.

Clemmensen, who stands at 6-foot-3 and weighs 180 pounds, scored 39 goals and assisted on 13 others during his senior season. His efforts helped lead the Broncos to a 2-1-2 record and a berth in the 6A state championship game, which they lost to Desert Vista High School.

Over his prep career, Clemmensen netted 113 goals with 24 assists. During his senior year, Brophy reached No. 1 in the rankings until the Broncos lost in the state final.

His expertise stretched beyond the soccer pitch. He volunteered as a mentor at St. Simon and Jude School as well as the Andre House, a ministry to the homeless in the Valley. He has also volunteered as a youth soccer coach.

For the next level, Clemmensen will take his talents to the University of California, Santa Barbara. Along with Brophy, he played at Sereno Soccer Club, which recently rebranded into Real Salt Lake Arizona.
