Romero Takes Home Weekly Award


October 11, 2017

SHAWNEE – After leading Oklahoma Baptist to a record-setting night in the squad's lone match last week, Luis Romero has been named the Offensive Player of the Week, the Great American Conference office announced Tuesday afternoon.

Romero, a native from Zaragoza, Spain, tallied his first career hat trick and posted seven points (3g, 1a) against Southern Nazarene in a rivalry tilt last week. With seven points off three goals and one assist, Romero set a new high-water mark for an individual player in the GAC this year. His hat trick is only the fifth in GAC history, four of the others have also been recorded by Bison. This is the second Offensive Player of the Week award of Romero's career, and his first since Sept. 27, 2016.

Oklahoma Baptist has now claimed seven weekly conference honors by seven different Bison this season.

The Bison (4-5-1, 2-1 GAC) looks to move above .500 for the first time since the start of the season when they welcome Harding to the OBU Soccer Complex on Thursday, Oct. 12 at 7:30 p.m. in a clash between the top two teams in the GAC.
