The National Premier Soccer League Thursday announced Orange County FC forward Blake Frischknecht as its first player of the week for the 2019 season.
Frischknecht tallied three goals and one assist in a 5-2 win over City of Angels FC May 4.
“I’m happy to be here and to be a part of OCFC,” Frischknecht said. “Thank you to the staff and ownership for letting me help out. Hopefully we can keep up this momentum going into the Open Cup game and the rest of the summer.”
Added Orange County FC head coach Paul Caligiuri: “Blake Frischknect was a huge addition to our OCFC roster. He is a perfect fit and had an immediate impact on the field. He is only going to get better and better.”
The Las Vegas native led Utah Valley University with six goals and 13 points in 2018, playing in all 18 matches and starting 16.
He was also named to the All-WAC second team and the All-Far West Region third team in 2018.
The winner is determined by a vote of media members from across the country.
