PISCATAWAY, N.J. (September 17, 2013) – Rutgers sophomore midfielder Mael Corboz (Green Brook, N.J.) was named the Division I Disney Soccer/NSCAA Player of the Week for Sept. 9-16, it was announced Tuesday.
Corboz, who earlier this week was named the American Athletic Conference (AAC) Offensive Player of the Week and earned a spot on College Soccer News’ National Team of the Week, captured a trio of goals and a pair of assists in RU’s 2-0 week.
