JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (Sept. 2, 2014) - College Sports Madness has named ETSU Men's Soccer's Joao Ramalho (Monte Santo, Brazil) Madness National Offensive Men’s Soccer Player of the Week.
College Sports Madness identifies the players who have made the greatest impact to their team from each conference and on a national basis each week.
Over the weekend, Ramalho helped the Buccaneers (2-0) defeat William & Mary and VCU in Richmond, Va., two teams that were receiving votes in the NSCAA Top 25 Coaches' Poll. The redshirt sophomore forward scored two goals in each of ETSU's VCU Invitational wins, including the game-winner at VCU.
Like ETSU, William & Mary and VCU clinched berths in the NCAA Tournament in 2013.
Ramalho was named the Southern Conference Men's Soccer Player of the Week for his performances during the team's opening weekend.
This season, Ramalho has emerged as a key two-way threat for ETSU, having scored four of the Bucs' five goals.
ETSU will host Radford Saturday, Sept. 6 at 7:00 p.m., in the Bucs' home opener.
