JBU’s Suarez Named as Conference & Region Player of the Week

Siloam Springs, Ark. (October 20, 2003) — Senior defender Federico Suarez of Montevideo, Uruguay has been named as the Sooner Athletic Conference and NAIA Region VI Player of the Week. Suarez earned the honor as a result of scoring 3 goals in last week’s action, 2 of those in the overtime win last Saturday against Southwestern Oklahoma State University. The second goal against SWOSU was the game-winning goal. Suarez also had 1 goal and 1 assist in an earlier win of the week against conference foe, University of the Science and Arts of Oklahoma.

“Federico played great in both victories last week and was a pivotal factor through his leadership in both wins. Although his goals were part of the reason for the wins, his leadership was even more valuable,” stated Coach Bob Gustavson in referring to Suarez’s being named as the Player of the Week.
