Johnson Named A-10 Men's Soccer Player of the Week

Richmond, Va. –  After a 2-0 weekend for the VCU Men's Soccer team in the Stihl Classic, junior forward Jason Johnson was named Atlantic 10 Player of the Week on Monday.  

Johnson scored three of his team-high four goals over the weekend. He also fired 12 shots with seven on goal, and was named to the All-Tournament team.

The Saint Mary, Jamaica native converted a penalty kick in the 84th minute in the Rams' 3-0 win over Winthrop on Friday. Johnson then added two more goals in VCU's 5-1 win over the Big East's Seton Hall on Sunday. He got the Rams on the board first with a goal in the 19th minute, and later added an insurance score in the 68th minute.

Johnson, who leads VCU in points with nine, has four goals and one assist so far this season.  He has also fired a team-high 25 shots, including 12 on goal.  

VCU is now unbeaten through its first five matches in back-to-back seasons for the first time since 1999-2000. The Rams will look to continue that streak on Friday, Sept. 14 when they head the Sunshine State to battle Florida Gulf Coast. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m.
