Oxnard Guerreros FC forward Moises Orozco has been selected as the third National Premier Soccer League player of the week this season.
“It is special,” Orozco said. “Every award means a lot, and it was even better because I was able to achieve this award with my hometown team. I just want the team to continue to get better each week.”
The Oxnard, Calif. native scored the game-winning goal in a 1-0 win over FC Arizona March 31. It was Orozco’s first NPSL goal and also the first win of the season for the Guerreros.
“Moi represents the Oxnard player,” Oxnard Guerreros FC head coach Juan Florez said. “He is gifted, a hard worker, and he is a dreamer. Moi has played at the highest level and knows he can be an impact there by polishing off a few things. He is pursuing this aggressively and understands the leadership role he has in the team.”
Orozco has seen success at the professional level for Tigres II in Mexico and Ararat Yerevan in Armenia. He made 29 appearances for the Armenian side, tallying five goals and two assists.
The winner of this national honor is determined by a vote of media members from across the country.
