Elias Katsaros Named Pac-12 Player of the Week

Sep 12, 2022

SAN FRANCISCO – Elias Katsaros of the Aztec men's soccer team was named the Pac-12 Player of the Week after netting three goals, including two in SDSU's 2-1 upset over No. 6 Denver last night.

Katsaros (Seattle, Wash.) also scored in the Aztecs' 5-0 win over UNLV Friday. All three of his goals came on headers off set pieces.

A three-year starter on defense, Katsaros had attempted just one shot through his first 27 games as an Aztec and then scored three goals on three attempts over the weekend.

Katsaros was also named to both the Top Drawer Soccer and the College Soccer News National Team of the Week.

This is the first Pac-12 Player of the Week award for an Aztec since goalkeeper Jacob Castro won it Sept. 21, 2021.

The Aztecs begin Pac-12 play this week with matches at California (1-1-3) Thursday and at No. 2 Stanford (4-0-1) Sunday. Both will be shown on Pac-12 Networks.
