Walnut Creek, Calif. - UCLA freshman midfielder Sal Zizzo has been named the Pac-10 Men's Soccer Player of the Week for Aug. 30 - Sept. 5, Commissioner Tom Hansen announced today.

In his first collegiate start, Zizzo, from San Diego, Calif. (Patrick Henry HS), scored a goal and two assists in UCLA's 4-0 upset victory over second-ranked Maryland. He assisted on UCLA's first two goals and scored the final goal in the second half. After one weekend of play, Zizzo is tied for the team lead in scoring with four points.

Zizzo was a member of the U.S. Under-18 National team that played in the Lisbon International Tournament and won the Milk Cup in Northern Ireland. He received Parade and NSCAA/adidas Youth All-American honors in 2005 and was a member of the 2003 National Champion ODP Cal South team.

The Bruins (1-1) were picked by the coaches to win the Pac-10 men's soccer title this season and are currently ranked No. 7 in the Soccer America poll and No. 15 in the NSCAA/adidas poll. They will face Loyola Marymount on Sun., Sept. 11 at LMU's Sullivan Field.

This is Zizzo's first Pac-10 Player of the Week honor and 22nd all-time weekly honor for UCLA.
