Trevor Martineau, right, has been a key piece of the Mercer men’s soccer team this season.

Trevor Martineau has accomplished a feat only five people before him have earned: Southern Conference Player of the Week three times in a single season. And he’s only a freshman.

Martineau leads the Mercer men’s soccer team (10-2-2, 3-0) with 19 points behind six goals and seven assists, a performance that has made him the first freshman in SoCon men’s soccer history to earn Player of the Week three times in a season.

He has done this despite starting only eight of the team’s 14 games.

“It’s pretty special,” head coach Brad Ruzzo said. “If he keeps developing the way he’s developing, he could end up being maybe one of the great players in program history.”
