Tennyson Named Pac-10 Men's Soccer Player Of The Week

Sept. 19, 2000

Walnut Creek, Calif. - For the second consecutive week, UCLA senior forward McKinley Tennyson Jr. has been named the Pac-10 Men's Soccer Player of the Week for Sept. 12-18, Commissioner Tom Hansen announced today.

Tennyson, from Indianapolis, Ind., recorded his second consecutive hat trick Sept. 17 against San Francisco, scoring all three goals in UCLA's 3-0 win. He became the first player in Bruin history to score hat tricks in consecutive games and tied school records for career hat tricks and single-season hat tricks with two each.

Tennyson leads the No. 1-ranked Bruins (4-0-0) with seven goals in just three games this season, giving him a nation-leading per-game average of 2.33. He also leads the nation in points per game with an average of 4.67. The Hermann Trophy nominee now holds a career total of 32 goals and 82 points.

This is the second weekly honor for Tennyson and UCLA's third Player of the Week honor this year. A UCLA player has earned Player of the Week acclaim all three weeks this year.

Soccer America also named Tennyson to its Team of the Week for the second straight week.

2000 Pac-10 Players of the Week: Sept. 5 - Shaun Tsakiris, UCLA, Sept. 12 - McKinley Tennyson Jr., Sept. 19 - McKinley Tennyson Jr.
