Under Armour Menís Soccer Player of the Week Ė Week 7
WHATCOM • SOPHOMORE • DEFENDER
Eric Jones, Snohomish HS/Snohomish, WA, has been a key factor on defense for the undefeated Orcas. Last week Jones scored the game-winning goal in a 3-0 victory over Everett and scored again in a 3-3 tie against 4th-ranked Peninsula as well as recording an assist. Jones has recorded at least one goal or assist in six of Whatcom’s last seven games as center back.† The backline has only allowed 9 goals against all season. Jones was also selected for Junior College player of the week on Tuesday by the United Soccer Coaches formerly known as NSCAA.
"Eric has been instrumental in the back line helping to lead an experienced group of players to a league leading 6 shutouts and only 9 goals against." said WCC head coach Jason Jorgensen. "Not only has he been a defensive threat in the air and on the ground he has a team leading 4 assists and 3 goals.† Eric is a great example of a leader on and off the field."
