LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Air Force water polo player Josh Stedman has been named the KAP7 Western Water Polo Association Co-Player of the Week, announced this afternoon by the league. Stedman, who earns the second WWPA Player of the Week honor of his career, shares the award with Santa Clara's Tucker Carlson.
Stedman, a junior from Brea, Calif., helped lead the 16th-ranked Falcons to a 3-1 record and a 3-0 WWPA mark in their opening weekend of competition. At the Inland Empire Classic, Stedman was the Falcons' leading goal scorer on the weekend with 12 goals, including a team-best six scores in Air Force's 15-8 victory over Chapman. Stedman also tallied an assist and a team-leading five steals in Air Force's first four games of the year.
Stedman and the rest of the Falcons return to action this weekend, Sept. 15-16, at the annual NorCal Tournament, hosted this year by Stanford.
