A UNF men’s soccer player earned the Atlantic Sun Conference Player of the Week
for the first time in the university’s history.

Sophomore forward Akil DeFreitas scored three goals in the two conference match-ups against East Tennessee State University and University of South Carolina Upstate during the weekend.

“It’s great for Akil to be awarded this honor,” UNF head coach Ray Bunch said. “It will give confidence not only to him but also to the whole team.”

DeFreitas scored two of the goals in the 2-1 double-overtime win against ETSU. In the 3-0 win against USC Upstate, DeFreitas scored the first goal and also added an assist.
