USC College Players of the Week

By Sean McCaffery, March 10, 2021

The quality quartet of the week as selected by United Soccer Coaches are, Callum Johnson of Clemson, Grace Yochum of Oklahoma St., Atoine Recizac of Mississippi Coll, & Bailey Hern of Valdosta St.

Proof positive of how small the Soccer World is, the first division player on the men's side is a NY native. Out of the NYRB Academy, Callum now out BC & with the Tigers, is coached by a member of the Louisville Thunder, the last pro team I worked for in Mike Noonan. The redshirt senior lead his team over Syracuse, always great to see the Orange lose, how is this for a great ratio, 3 shots 2 goals in just 75' during his 3rd start of the year.

Grace for her part hit for a dramatic 98" Golden Goal facing #17 St. Louis, the St. Louis native did this by way of a pk, her team's 2nd win over a ranked team, the other was at home. With this, her 6th goal on the year, she is tied for most goals in her conference.

D II was equally impressive as the one foreign player out of the 4. Recizac had a brace at 25' & 33"  to go with an assist on the first goal in the 3-1 win as his Choctaws took down Union out of TN. Soph. Hern, of FL had her fist scores for her Blazers, not quite the heady ratio of Callum, she had a pair of goals on a team tops 8 shots, still a great ration.  This all came abut in a barn burning come from behind 4-3 win over Auburn Montgomery.
