Los Angeles, Calif. - After being named College Soccer News National Player of the Week, junior forward Chandler Hoffman has earned more weekly accolades.

In addition to those awards, Chandler was named the Soccer America National Player of the Week as well.

The Birmingham, Ala., native produced a hat trick in the second half on Friday to lead the Bruins to a 3-2 come from behind victory over No. 6/9 UC Santa Barbara. It was the fifth-consecutive match that Hoffman scored a goal in, tying a UCLA record held by Joe Max-Moore and Billy Thompson.
