Players of the Week

Offensive Player of the Week

Denver 2-18
Trevor Baptiste, Denver
Fr. | Midfield | 5-foot-10 | 215 lbs. | Denville, N.J.

Baptiste’s collegiate debut came against reigning national champion Duke, but it was Baptiste who played like a seasoned veteran. Baptiste won 25 of 34 faceoffs, picking up 14 ground balls off faceoff wins, and scored one goal in No. 1 Denver’s 17-13 win against Duke.

The 25 faceoff wins was just one shy of Denver’s school record set by Ben Wahler (26) against Ohio State on April 19, 2008.

Denver (1-0) hosts the Frontier Airlines Face-Off Classic this weekend with the Pioneers facing Air Force (0-2) on Saturday and Furman (0-2) on Sunday.

Defensive Player of the Week

Syracuse 2-18
Sean Young, Syracuse
Sr. | Defense | 6-foot-2 | 191 lbs. | Ontario, Canada

Young spearheaded an Orange defense that allowed just one first-half goal, and six total, to then-No. 8 Cornell in the 100th matchup between the two schools. Young picked up a career-high four ground balls and forced three turnovers. Young’s assignment, All-American Dan Lintner was held scoreless for the first time in 17 games.

The Orange (2-0) next hosts Army (3-0) on Sunday.
