University of Missouri-St. Louis sophomore men's soccer midfielder Jon Huelsman, a Waterloo High graduate, has been named the Disney Soccer/NSCAA Division II Player of the Week.
Huelsman, also named the Great Lakes Valley Conference Player of the Week, scored three of the four UMSL goals scored this past weekend. He has five goals in 12 games this season for the Tritons (6-6).
The Tritons recorded 2-1 wins at William Jewell on Friday and No. 8 Rockhurst on Sunday, with Huelsman scoring both first-half goals in the upset win at Rockhurst.
UMSL was held to four shots in the game, all of which were taken by Huelsman. The victory in Kansas City marked the Tritons' second win over a top-10 team in the last 10 days, as they also defeated then No. 4 ranked Drury at home on Oct. 4.
The Disney Soccer/NSCAA Players of the Week are announced every Tuesday throughout the fall college season during the College Highlights and Rankings Show on NSCAATV.com. The program was expanded to include a men's and women's winner from all three NCAA divisions in 2013.
Huelsman also played one season at Southwestern Illinois College, where he earned all-region honors after scoring 10 goals with six assists.
