NEW LONDON, Conn.--Connecticut College junior Trevor Prophet of Nashua, N.H. has been named the New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) Men´s Soccer Player of the Week.
Prophet contributed three goals and one assist in a perfect 2-0 week for his squad. With a 3-1 record, the upstart Camels are off to their fastest start in nine years.
"Trevor personifies everything that we are looking for in a student-athlete," head coach Kenny Murphy said. "He is a terrific student and a leader for us on and off the field."
Saturday afternoon, Prophet assisted on the first goal and scored in the second half of a 4-1 victory against a second ranked and previously unbeaten Amherst College squad.
Wednesday night, Prophet had two goals in a 3-2 victory against the Coast Guard.
Prophet was honored as a First-Team All-NESCAC forward in 2008. In his rookie season of 2007, Prophet netted a team-high six goals for Connecticut College.
Prophet has displayed his versatility as a prominent contributor and captain on the tennis courts for the Camels, competing between #1 and #2 singles. Off the field, Prophet serves in a leadership capacity as the president of the Student Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC).
In the classroom, Prophet has excelled in his academic majors of economics and international relations as a Dean´s List Student.
The Camels will visit UMass-Dartmouth Tuesday afternoon for a 4:15 p.m. game in North Dartmouth, Mass.
