WALNUT CREEK, Calif. - Washington senior midfielder Raphael Cox was named the Pac-10 Men's Soccer Player of the Week for Sept. 16-22, Commissioner Tom Hansen announced today.
Cox was instrumental in the Huskies' 3-2 overtime victory against No. 24 New Mexico to win the Husky Fever Classic on Sunday. The victory also gave head coach Dean Wurzberger his 200th win at Washington. The Tacoma, Wash., helped the Huskies come back from a two-goal deficit against the Lobos, scoring the equalizing goal in the 79th minute and the gamewinner in the 98th minute. It was the first multiple-goal effort for Cox who earned All-Pac-10 second-team acclaim last season.
The UW Daily student newspaper has a feature on the Husky Men: Men’s soccer hopes to ride old and new to victories.
Already making a mark with the team is freshman forward Brent Richards from Camas, Wash. He is a regular starter and has led the team in shots on multiple occasions including, most recently, the Husky Fever Classic in which the Huskies were victorious.
Playing alongside Richards is another rookie, midfielder Dylan Tucker-Gangnes, a product of Bainbridge Island.
“The two freshmen up front are doing very well,” Washington coach Dean Wurzberger said. “You can’t pile heaps of expectations on a freshman but [Brent] is doing ever so well and so is his playing partner Dylan. We’re happy that they’re as far along as they are.”
