STANFORD, Calif.-- Freshman Aaron Kovar of the men's soccer team has been named the Muscle Milk Student-Athlete of the Week for August 20-26.
This is the first career honor for Kovar and first for a men's soccer player since Daniel Leon on November 24, 2009.
Kovar helped Stanford to its first season-opening victory since 2003 as the Cardinal defeated USF, 1-0. Kovar scored in the second minute on assists from Adam Jahn and JJ Koval. It was the first career goal for Kovar and turned out to be the game winner.
Kovar comes to Stanford from Garfield high school in Seattle, Wash. He scored in both exhibition games, as well as the opener. He started the opener at a wide midfield position where he can attack from the wing.
