Freitas Sets Records Mid-Season

Marlon Freitas, Crowder College Soccer student-athlete from Sao Paulo, Brazil, has broken the school record for most goals in a season, 13, and most game winning goals, 6, with the season at the halfway point.

Freitas, a sophomore for the Roughriders was named 1st Team All-Region 16 last season. Freitas holds individual records from last season as follows:

            Most consecutive games with a goal – 5 (tied for 1st)
            Most points in a season – 29
            Top Goal Scorers/Season – 12
            Top Goal Scorers/Career – 12 (tied for 4th overall)

"Marlon is a very accurate shooter with a hard shot. He demands the ball and is not afraid to take people on to make his own opportunity. More importantly for us, our players look to him when we get near the box and most of the time he does not disappoint. Marlon has stepped up his leadership by embracing our possession game and encouraging the other players to continue to work hard to make it work. He is obviously the centerpiece of our attack," stated Coach Brad Smith.
