Rodriguez claims first career A-Sun Player of the Week honors

Junior forward Nick Rodriguez was named the Atlantic Sun’s Player of the Week after he scored a goal and added an assist in a 2-2 double overtime tie with UCF. 

After a scoreless first half, Rodriguez helped JU score two goals in five minutes.  In the 62nd minute he was able to get his head on a throw in and direct the ball past the UCF keeper to tie the game at one.  Just five minutes later, Rodriguez sent a cross into the box that freshman forward Gavin Craig shot and scored on. 

The Dolphins will play their last of three straight road games on September 18th when they travel to play High Point University.
