Player of the Week

Jose Ayala

Player of the Weekby Lauren Lasky

Jose Ayala has been chosen as the Campus Recreation Player of the Week for his efforts in the co-rec recreational soccer league. Ayala is a junior from the south Bronx.
As a member of Skillz That Killz, this is his first year participating in the outdoor soccer league. However, Ayala has proved to be a strong leader that has made many contributions to his team.
In the team's first game against Impractical Foot Fairies, Ayala scored all three goals for Skillz That Killz. His third goal was enough to break away from a tied game, ending with a score of 3-2. The team faced a setback in their second game of the league, losing 4-2 to The Fat and the Furious. In the next game, however, Skillz That Killz didn't disappoint, and neither did Ayala. He pulled his team out of its slump by scoring the first goal of the game and building up his teammates' confidence, which led Skillz That Killz to victory, defeating Soccer Squad 2-1.
"I try to be the best team player and help to assist my teammates," said Ayala. "I feel my team is good enough to win the championship if we stay healthy."
Ayala would describe himself as a competitor, but also comedic and intelligent. These characteristics have carried over to his attitude on the sports field. "I've been playing sports all my life," said Ayala. "It's what I do, it's what I love and I will never stop playing."
