Oct. 21, 2011

ATHENS, Ohio – Ohio Soccer’s Toye Famodu has been named a Scholar Athlete of the Week, the Mid-American Conference office announced this afternoon.

Famodu had a part in every single goal that Ohio Soccer scored over the last weekend of competition. The senior midfielder scored Ohio's go-ahead goal in the first half of Friday's contest against Miami, assisted in teammate Veronica Rock's game-winning goal against Bowling Green on Sunday and scored the second and final goal of the contest against BGSU. Famodu's five-point weekend was absolutely critical in Ohio's ability to keep hold of the top spot in the Mid-American Conference East Division. With her successful weekend, the senior now leads the Bobcats in goals scored (5), points (12) and is co-leader in assists (2). She has proved to be the most consistent and effective offensive player for Ohio all season long.

Majoring in Global Studies with a focus on Latin America, Famodu has managed to achieve a very impressive 3.842 grade point average. She is also minoring in both Anthropology and Spanish.

The MAC Scholar Athlete of the Week honor is presented to a MAC male and female student-athlete who has a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or better and performs well during the week’s competition. The winners are selected by a group of the conference’s faculty athletic representatives.

Ohio Soccer plays its next match Friday at 3 p.m. Follow the live chat here!
