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.

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.
