Sean De SilvaCollege of Charleston sophomore midfielder Sean de Silva (Port of Spain, Trinidad) has been chosen as the Southern Conference men's soccer player of the week for all matches from September 13-19.

de Silva scored three goals last week as the Cougars blitzed both Bucknell and Lehigh to win the 2010 Nike/Aaron Olitsky Memorial Classic title. On Friday, the sophomore scored the game-winning goal as the Cougars downed the regionally-ranked Bison, 4-0. In Sunday's match against Lehigh, which also entered the match with a regional ranking, de Silva struck again. This time he tallied two goals, including the game winning mark in a 3-0 triumph.

In addition to garnering the SoCon Player of the Week Honors, De Silva's performance placed his name on the Nike / Aaron Olitsky Memorial Classic All-Tournament Team as well as the eleven-man College Soccer News National Team of the Week.

The Cougars enter Tuesday's showdown with No. 19 Wake Forest with a 3-2-1 overall record and the No. 10 ranking in the South region.
