Lucas Campos Selected as USA South Conference Men’s Soccer Rookie of the Week


BREVARD, N.C. – Following an overtime golden goal that gave the Brevard College Tornados men's soccer team its first victory of the season, freshman midfielder Lucas Campos has been tabbed the USA South Conference Men's Soccer Rookie of the Week.

Campos becomes BC men's soccer's first weekly honoree of the 2019 campaign.

The newcomer from Uberlandia, Brazil talled a golden goal in Brevard's only action of the week last Saturday to push the Tornados past the LaGrange Panthers, 2-1 on the road in LaGrange, Ga. Campos' goal came less than two minutes into the first overtime period.

Saturday's game-winning goal was Campos' first career game-winner and his second goal overall as a Tornado. He scored Brevard's last-minute equalizer on Sept. 17 in a 2-2 draw versus Piedmont.

Campos' selection is one of four total honors bestowed on Tornado student-athletes this week by the USA South. In total, six athletes have received conference weekly honors thus far in the 2019-20 season.
