Below is the official announcement:
The 2020 Moe Rosensteel Player of the Year Award winner is Sarah Schupansky of North Allegheny Senior High School. Sarah Schupansky was a finalist in 2019 for the award.

Kaitlyn “Moe” Rosensteel was taken from us June 13, 2019. She was loved by her family and friends. Moe grew up playing the game she loved with her sister and her friends. The game of soccer built those long-lasting friendships and created many others. The game gave Moe the opportunity to play at the collegiate level, though she would never get a chance to take the field. The Kaitlyn “Moe” Rosensteel Scholarship Foundation provides this award in her memory.
