M. Soccer – Rivero selected Player of the Week a fourth time

Jorge RiveroOVERLAND PARK, Kan. – Johnson County Community College freshman forward Jorge Rivero is making a case for MVP of the Kansas Jayhawk Conference. For the fourth time in six weeks, Rivero has been selected the KJCCC/Verizon Wireless Player of the Week. 

Rivero led JCCC to a pair of conference wins last week. Against Pratt on Sept. 24, Rivero played a part in four of JCCC’s five goals, scoring two and assisting on two. Three days later, he netted both of his team’s goals, the second coming in the 92nd minute to give the Cavaliers a 2-1 overtime road victory.  Rivero is the team’s leader in points (31), goals (12) and assists (7). His 31 points currently rank fifth in the NJCAA, and his 12 goals tie for ninth nationally.
