The freshman midfielder scored his first career goal against Louisville, contributing to IU's 2-0 victory over the Cardinals. He notched the lone goal in Saturday's win against Northwestern, 1-0. The Portage, Mich. native, is the second Hoosier freshman to be named Player of the Week this season as Darren Yeagle accomplished the feat on Oct. 2, 2006.
