PACWEST Athlete of the week

September 14th, 2011

Congratulations Jared on being named PACWEST Athlete of the week !!

Jared Stephens picked up the 2011 soccer season the same way he left off the 2010 season, leading his VIU Mariners soccer team. Last season Jared was the MVP at the BCCAA Provincial Championships, best forward at the Provincial Championships and a BCCAA league all-star. The Mariners captain also added a CCAA National tournament All-star to his list of accomplishments.

   The VIU Mariners played their first league game of the season against Capilano University and once again Jared Stephens was the go to guy with two goals 2 minutes apart to lead the Mariners to a 3-1 win. Stephens looks like he will be a force to deal with up front and when he starts to attract too much attention he has the skill to use his players around him, making Jared a double threat for teams to deal with.
