Andrew Jo Howoon Ignacio Masís Emanuel Lom

Andrew Jo Howoon (UMA FC) Manager of the Season
UMA FC came into the UPSL Georgia Conference in their first year to run away with the Division 1 title while setting records in the process. In the following season, they were promoted to the Premier Division and despite only having youth players available to draw upon for the bulk of the season, managed to survive in the Premier Division and only just missed the playoffs on the season’s last day. This season, UMA managed to qualify for the playoffs in the Premier Division for the first time and continue to show consistency and progress in their career in the UPSL. This is a testament to the leadership of Andrew Jo Howoon who works well within the parameters of the league as well as maintains a full club with a quality academy and 1st team squads This combination of quality is why he has been awarded ASMG’s Manager of the Season.

Ignacio Masís (Potros FC) Coach of the Season
Since coming into the UPSL several seasons ago, Potros FC has always provided a strong administration presence in the league with their owner, Christopher Uranga receiving honors as manager of the club in multiple seasons in recent years. However, the coaching excellence was on full display for the 2024 Spring season as Potros FC secured their first ever Premier Division Regular Season Title and go into the Division Playoffs as a #1 seed. The man behind this success is coach Ignacio Masís who guided what can be described as the most consistent team in the Premier Division to top honors this season.

Emanuel Lom (North Georgia United FC) Golden Boot Winner
North Georgia United FC have endured one of the more difficult seasons for them in this 2024 Spring season with a first ever relegation for the club in the UPSL. However, Emanuel Lom has been one of the shinning stars for North Georgia and will possibly be a key player for the club in the Fall as they will certainly look to bounce back to the Premier after the Fall season. Lom scored a league leading 11 goals only just pipping his teammate, Ronald Maradiaga, who himself was a key figure for the club scoring 10 goals for North Georgia as part of the one, two punch from North Georgia in the Spring.

Golden Boot

Jonathan Cueva Sean Duvall Tristan Shytle

Jonathan Cueva (LSA Pro) Manager of the Season
Jonathan Cueva oversaw a successful first season in the UPSL Division 1 by guiding his club to a Division 1 title with a promotion playoff victory against Fountain City FC. LSA is not a new team but are returning for a 2nd time in the Georgia Conference to compete to return to their former position in the Premier Division. Cueva oversaw the operations of LSA to a successful season that has culminated in the Division 1 Championship and an automatic promotion to the Premier Division for the 2024 Fall season.

Sean Duvall (Fountain City FC) Coach of the Season
Fountain City FC have been a revelation in their first season in the UPSL. Dominating the regular season in the Division 1 South, they only came up short by a single goal in the Division 1 Championship game against LSA Pro. Despite the setback in the Championship game, they still are in a position for more honors by qualifying for the Division 1 promotion playoffs. Being a relatively new team took skillful planning and organization by a head coach and Sean Duvall is being recognized as tops in the division on these qualities.

Tristan Shytle (Fountain City FC) Golden Boot Winner
Tristan Shytle has had a phenomenal season with Fountain City FC this season winning the Golden Boot Award for the most goals by an individual in the regular season. Shytle scored 18 goals and contributed to a 1st place finish for his team in the UPSL Georgia Division 1 South at the end of it all. A leader on and off the pitch, Shytle was pivotal to the success on the pitch for Fountain City for Spring 2024. See Shytle’s interview from earlier in the season for his story on this ASMG Set Pieces Podcast segment.
