Nyekan Named NCCAA Student-Athlete of the Week
GREENVILLE, SC- The NCCAA National Office announced that Freshman Brandon Nyekan was named the NCCAA Division II Student-Athlete of the Week on Tuesday for Men's Soccer.
Previous to yesterday's game, Brandon scored 6 goals and 1 assist in his last 3 games, helping the Patriots to a 2-1 record in those games. This included a hat trick on October 20th in an exciting thriller vs. Penn State Hazleton. In that game he scored just as time expired to send the game into overtime. He then would score the game winner in the 8th minute of overtime.
For these impressive accomplishments the NCCAA was announced him as the NCCAA Division II Student-Athlete of the Week. The UVF community would like to congratulate Brandon on this honor.
