Sept. 8, 2003
Air Force sophomore midfielders Colin Eames and Daniel Wasson swept the first two Brine Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Player of the Week awards for their outstanding offensive leadership during the opening weeks of the 2003 men's soccer season. The award is the first of each player's career.
Eames garnered the 2003 Parent's Weekend Invitational Tournament Most Offensive Player award by posting a goal and an assist in a 5-3 loss to Gonzaga and three assists in a 7-0 win over Marquette. He won the MPSF Player of the Week award for the week ending August 31.
Wasson, meanwhile, became the first player in school history to notch back-to-back hat tricks in the Falcons' high-scoring shutout over Marquette and a 5-2 win over Drury on Sept. 5. Wasson currently leads the MPSF in scoring with 13 points (six goals, one assist), more than double the next highest scorers (six points by Eames and Lance Watson of New Mexico).
Air Force returns to the field next Friday, Sept. 12 at the John Byrden Classic hosted by the University of Denver. The Falcons will face New Hampshire in the tournament's first game at 1:30 p.m., then battle Northeastern on Sunday, Sept. 14 at 11 a.m.
