BIRMINGHAM, Ala.—Senior Tobias Winter has been named the Southern Athletic Association Men's Soccer Offensive Player of the Week for the second time this season, the league announced today.

Winter, a forward from Giessen, Germany, helped the men's soccer team open their conference slate with a 3-0 win against Rhodes on Saturday. He recorded the assist on the first goal of the game, which would turn out to be the game-winner, and proceeded to score the next two goals to put the game out of reach and help clinch the victory.

Winter was also named SAA Player of the Week on September 16.

The Panthers are at home this weekend, continuing conference play against Centre, Friday at 5 p.m., and Sewanee, Sunday at noon, at the newly-minted Preston Goldfarb Field.
