Ohio State’s Cameron and Wake Forest’s Okoli each honored as Disney Soccer/NSCAA Player of the Week
A combined 14 points and a hat trick are some highlights from Ohio State senior Tiffany Cameron and Wake Forest sophomore Sean Okoli, who have each been named Disney Soccer/NSCAA Player of the Week.
Cameron, a forward from Mississauga, Ontario, tallied eight points on four goals in the No. 25 Buckeyes’ wins over No. 17 Michigan and Michigan State. In competition last week, she posted her eighth game-winning goal and now owns the program’s single-season record in goals (16).
She leads the Ohio State squad with 35 points on 16 goals and three assists.
Okoli currently leads the team with 17 points on a team-leading eight goals and an assist. Last week, the Federal Way, Wash., native posted his first career hat trick in the No. 13 Demon Deacons’ 3-1 win over league opponent NC State.
The hat trick was the sixth by an ACC player and second by a Wake Forest player this season.
