Fubara named to TopDrawerSoccer.com Top 100 Freshmen
       
JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (Sept. 27, 2010) - Junior Aaron Schoenfeld (Knoxville, Tenn.) received Atlantic Sun Player of the Week and College Soccer News National Team of the Week honors for his two overtime game-winning goals against Marshall and UNC Asheville, announced the conference office and College Soccer News on Monday.
 
"Aaron's play in and around the box has been impressive," said head coach Scott Calabrese. "He has been critical to our early season success. Aaron is a unique player in my experience as he has tremendous work rate, and at 6-foot-4 is physically imposing.  However, he is also technically very gifted and has created chances and scored goals in many different ways.  I am really pleased for Aaron to receive these accolades as he has worked hard to become the player he is."
 
In the Marshall game, Schoenfeld had an assist to give the Bucs (5-2-0) a 1-0 lead early in the match, and then netted the game-winner in the 97th minute as he headed in the cross from freshman Itode Fubara (Ogbema, Nigeria).
 
Schoenfeld came up big in the UNC Asheville contest as well as his goal in the 103rd minute lifted the Bucs past the Bulldogs, 2-1.
 
The Knoxville, Tenn. native has scored a goal in three straight matches. Schoenfeld leads the team in goals (3), points (8) and game-winning goals (2).
 
Schoenfeld is the second ETSU player to receive A-Sun Player of the Week honors as Guilherme Reis (Belo Horizonte, Brazil) was named the A-Sun Defensive Player of the Week on Sept. 7.
 
Freshman Itode Fubara also received honors as he was named to the TopDrawerSoccer.com National Top 100 Freshmen. Fubara was ranked 72nd by Top Drawer Soccer. On the season, Fubara has tallied a goal and three assists in seven games for the Bucs.
 
"Fubara is a player with tremendous potential," Calabrese said. "Itode is quickly adapting to the college game, and has been a major contributor to our success thus far this season. He is a player with the ability to change the game for us as he can both beat players for pace and has a good range of passing skills. I am very excited to see how he develops during his four years at ETSU."
