ATLANTA – Anchoring the Buffaloes to a pair of wins to push their winning streak to six games, Colorado senior defensive midfielder Jay Snell has earned MCLA Division I Commanding Performance of the Week powered by Under Armour for the period ending March 19.
In Thursday’s win over a dogged New Hampshire squad, Snell locked down one of the top Wildcats offensive middies while also striking for a goal of his own.
On Sunday, the Buffs entertained defending national champion and No. 10 Chapman – which was fresh off a win over No. 8 Colorado State on Friday – and Snell was once again the tip of the spear as CU subdued the Panthers, 17-15.
The Toledo, Ohio, product had three ground balls while continuing his premium defensive assignments as Colorado improved to 7-2.
“Jay provides a presence on the defensive side of the field and brings great hustle between the lines,” said Colorado coach John Galvin.
For his efforts in earning the Commanding Performance of the Week powered by Under Armour, Snell will receive a new Under Armour Command Head – a $100 value. Under Armour is the proud sponsor of the MCLA.
