AUBURN, AL. - Having already been named the Southeastern Conference Offensive Player of the Week and a CollegeSoccer360.com Primetime Performer, Katy Frierson grabbed an even bigger honor on Wednesday afternoon as she was named the NSCAA National Player of the Week. 

Frierson, a junior midfielder from Homewood, scored the game-winner against No. 5 Florida State on Friday night, putting the ball in the net with just 2:57 left in the second overtime. The goal was the third game-winner for her this season and the 10th of her career, which is just one shy of the school record. She also added an assist against the Seminoles. 

Frierson followed up her performance against Florida State with a goal in Auburn's 3-0 win over Western Carolina to give her a goal in three consecutive contests. 

With her two goals and an assist over the weekend, Frierson now has 18 career goals, 20 career assists and 56 career points. 

Each week, a male and female player will be selected by a committee from a nomination pool comprised of players of the week from each NCAA Division I soccer conference. The players will be announced each Wednesday afternoon through NSCAA.com, the official website of the National Soccer Coaches Association of America. They also will be recognized at halftime of the NSCAA College Game of the Week on Fox Soccer Channel, a schedule of 20 men's and women's intercollegiate matches. The women's first broadcast will be at 6pm Thursday, Sept. 9. 

Auburn returns to action on Friday afternoon when the No. 25-ranked team in the nation takes on Southern Cal at 5:30pm CT in Los Angeles.
