TAMPA - USF's Dom Dwyer leads the Big East in goals and the conference rewarded him for his latest flurry of scores.
The junior was named Big East Offensive Player of the Week for men's soccer on Monday after he scored three goals in the Bulls' two victories last week. Dwyer is tops among all Big East scorers with 10 goals and he also leads in the conference in points (20).
"The scoring is what everyone is talking about, but it's the other stuff," USF head coach George Kiefer said. "He's drawing so much attention now, yet he'll share it, so you have to be careful and don't overplay him. He's good at slipping guys, but he's also a guy that works hard on defense."
Dwyer's goal total in his debut as a Bull is the most by any USF player since Jordan Seabrook put 14 into the back of the net in 2005.
"He's a complete package," Kiefer said.
Dwyer started last week off with a goal in USF's 2-0 win at Florida Gulf Coast University on Tuesday and added two more, including the game-winner, in a 3-2 victory over No. 8 St. John's on Saturday night.
USF (7-2-2) was ranked as highly as No. 14 last week and is the Big East Red Division leader going into Wednesday's home game against DePaul at 7:30 p.m.
