ATLANTA – After guiding Brigham Young to a pair of Top 10 wins and the RMLC tournament championship, Brigham Young freshman attackman Chris Severson has earned Division I Commanding Performance of the Week powered by Under Armour for the period ending May 1.
In Friday’s victory over No. 6 Colorado State, Severson posted a pair of goals for the Cougars in the 10-5 victory that sent them to the RMLC finals against Colorado. It was there that the South Jordan, Utah, native made his mark.
Severson torched the Buffaloes for two goals and five assists, factoring in over half of the team’s production in the 12-8 triumph. With the conference championship, the Cougars secured the No. 5 seed in the MCLA National Championships.
"Chris is one of the hardest working players on our team,” said BYU coach Matt Schneck. “His effort, his consistency in showing up to the field early to take extra shots and his desire to help the team in anyway has put him in a position to contribute every week in every game. He leads the team in scoring on the field and with his example off the field. He is an all-around great young man and representative of BYU. As only a freshman, he has a very bright future.”
For his efforts in earning the Commanding Performance of the Week powered by Under Armour, Severson will receive a new Under Armour Command Head. Under Armour is the proud sponsor of the MCLA.
