UCLA freshman goalkeeper DJ Countess (Fair Oaks, CA/Bella Vista HS) was selected to Soccer America's Team of the Week for games played on the weekend of Sept. 3.
Countess was selected the Defensive MVP of the adidas/IU Credit Union Classic after shutting out Butler and making eight saves against then-top-ranked Indiana to help give UCLA a 2-1 upset victory. One of Countess' eight saves was on a second-half penalty kick.
Last weekend, Countess became the first true freshman in 20 years to start in goal for the Bruins on opening day.
