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. 4, Commissioner Tom Hansen announced today.

Forrest, from Edmonds, Wash., was named the Offensive Player of the Nike Portland Invitational after he logged a hat trick for Washington, helping the Huskies to a 4-1 win over Air Force.

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 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 addition to his performance against Air Force, Forrest netted two goals against UC Davis, bringing his season total to five goals in just three games.

Forrest sat out with a foot injury last season, but was named to both the All-Pac-10 first team and All-Academic first team in 2004 after leading the Huskies with nine goals and 20 points.

This is Forrest's first weekly honor and the 15th all-time player of the week honor for the Huskies.
