Goodrum named CAA Rookie of Week


RICHMOND, Virginia – UNCW freshman forward Phillip Goodrum has been named the Colonial Athletic Association Men's Soccer Rookie-of-the-Week for the week ending Sept. 25.

"Phillip has played well since he set foot on campus and brings an incredible desire and work rate every day to training to become a better soccer player," said Head Coach Aidan Heaney. "His goal against Charlotte was well-deserved and I am looking forward to seeing further production from him as the season goes on."

A native of Charlotte, N.C., Goodrum scored the eventual game-winning goal in the Seahawks' upset of No. 5 Charlotte on Tuesday night, giving UNCW a 1-0 lead in the 12th minute. He also had two shots in the Seahawks' 1-1 draw against William & Mary on Saturday night.

Goodrum has started all seven contests this season and scored two goals.

UNCW, ranked No. 13 in this week's Top Drawer Soccer Division I poll, begins a three-game road trip on Wednesday, Sept. 28, at Elon at 7 p.m.
