Sept. 5, 2006
Walnut Creek, Calif. - Washington junior forward Kevin Forrest has been named the Pac-10 Men's Soccer Player of the Week for Aug. 29-Sept. 5.
Forrest, from Edmonds, Wash. scored three goals during Washington's 4-1 win over Air Force. He helped the Huskies to the Nike Portland Invitational title, and was also named the Offensive Player of the Tournament.
Forrest also netted two goals against UC Davis on Aug. 25, bringing his season total in just three games to five goals.
Forrest leads the Conference in shots (18), shots per game (6.00), points (10), points per game (3.33), goals (5) and goals per game (1.67).
Against Air Force, Forrest started his scoring tear at 44:13, knocking the ball into the right corner of the net from 10 yards out. His second goal came just 10 minutes later on a four-yard deflection into the right corner, thanks to assists from George John and Bobbak Talebi. A free kick from 25 yards marked Forrest's third goal of the match.
In 2004, Forrest was both an All-Pac-10 first team selection and an All-Academic first-team selection, after leading the team with nine goals and 20 points. He sat out the 2005 season with a foot injury.
Forrest is the second UW player this season to garner Player of the Week honors. Fellow junior forward Ely Allen received the first award of the season on Aug. 29.
