VOTE: 2018 USL Midseason Awards - Ian Russell Coach of the Year

The 2018 USL Regular Season reached its midway point last Saturday night, when more than 18,000 fans packed into Nissan Stadium to see Nashville SC play host to FC Cincinnati in the 280th game of the 561-game schedule - a game that was part of the second-highest attended week in the USL's modern era. With numerous standout performances across the league, both on the field and on the sidelines, we've selected our nominees for the USL Midseason Awards for you to cast your ballot for which player or coach should claim the 2018 Fans' Choice USL Midseason Award in five categories.

Russell's leadership helped 1868 FC overcome a slow start to the season, as the club produced a league-best 15-game undefeated streak to move into a top-three place in the Western Conference. 1868 FC sits tied for sixth in the league this season with 28 goals, fifth in the league with 250 shots and fourth in chances created with 205, as the entertaining brand of soccer that carried the side in its inaugural season has continued in to the club's second year.
