MELBOURNE, Fla. - Felipe DeSousa has been chosen as the men's soccer offensive player of the week as announced earlier today by the conference office.

On Saturday, he scored the opening goal in the 8th minute against Florida Tech and scored the game winner in the 88th minute to help UT improve to 5-2-2 in SSC play and remain a perfect 5-0 at home.
The team returns to action this Wednesday as they travel to St. Leo, Fla. to take on the Saint Leo Lions in an SSC match. Kickoff for the game is scheduled for 7 p.m.
