Megan Schafer, the Inquirer's Southeastern Pa. girls' soccer player of the year, was named on Thursday as the Gatorade girls' soccer Pennsylvania player of the year.

The senior forward led Neshaminy to a 25-0 record and the PIAA Class AAA title last season. Schafer scored 33 goals and recorded 18 assists. The award recognizes both athletic achievement and Schafer's work in the classroom and community.

She has a 4.32 grade-point average, is a member of the National Honor Society, has volunteered with Athletes Helping Athletes and Aid For Friends. She is bound for Penn State.

"Megan Schafer is unstoppable," said Emmaus head coach Rob Rooney in a statement. "It's been a long time since I saw a player move that well without the ball, and she was just deadly in the final third. She had a remarkable season—one of the best in state history."
