Alexander, Dobles Earn All-Louisiana Honors

Baton Rouge, La. – LSU soccer forwards Tinaya Alexander and Taylor Dobles were recognized as the Louisiana Player of the Year and Freshman of the Year, respectively, for the 2020-21 season, the Louisiana Sports Writers Association announced.

Alexander, a striker from Reading, Berkshire, England, was voted Player of the Year after anchoring the Tigers in several offensive categories including points (21), goals (nine) and shots on goal (19).  Her nine goals and 21 points ranked in the top four in the SEC this season.  Five of her nine goals came against SEC competition.

Dobles earned Freshman of the Year honors after ranking third on the squad in points (eight) and goals (three).  The Pembroke Pines, Florida native notched her first multi-goal game against Alabama in the first round of the SEC Tournament and put together a three-game point streak in the fall during league action.

Alexander and Dobles also received spots on the All-Louisiana team in addition to their individual honors. One more Tiger received All-Louisiana recognition, with Molly Thompson receiving honorable mention. Thompson finished the season with five goals, good enough to rank her second on the team in goals and also second in points (ten).
