The Great Lakes Valley Conference named University of Southern Indiana senior midfielder Jeffrey McClure (Indianapolis, Indiana) the men's soccer Player of the Week for a second-straight week. The Player of the Week award also is the second of McClure's career.
McClure earned the award after leading the Screaming Eagles to their first-ever victory over 16th-ranked Rockhurst University Sunday afternoon. The senior art major scored all three Eagle goals in the 3-2 upset of the top-20 Hawks, marking the first USI win over a ranked opponent since 2000.
In 2012, McClure has recorded a career-best and team-high 22 points on nine goals and four assists. He has scored eight of his nine goals on a Sunday this season and a total of seven in the last two weeks (one vs. University of Illinois Springfield, September 9; four vs. University of Indianapolis, September 30; three vs. Rockhurst, October 7).
The Eagles hit the road this week in the GLVC when they travel to eighth-ranked Drury University Friday and Missouri University of Science and Technology Sunday.
