Congratulations are in order for Kentucky Soccer’s JJ Williams, who was named National Player of the Week by the United Soccer Coaches, one of several accolades he’s racked up this season.

In last night’s 0-0 draw vs. Xavier, the junior forward had six shots, three on goal. Last week, he scored two goals in Kentucky’s big win over then-No. 7 Louisville and another vs. UAB, earning him his second-straight Conference USA Offensive Player of the Week award. He was also named Player of the Week by College Soccer News. Through five games, he already has more goals (four) than he finished with in each of the last two years.

The Cats are now 4-0-1 and ranked sixth in the country. They play Lipscomb in Nashville next Tuesday night.

    It’s weird to me that basketball and football incorporate the checkerboard pattern in the jerseys.

    But, soccer, especially on a national team level, are known for being pretty aggressive about what they wear. I would have thought that it was a full checkerboard.

      Baseball also doesn’t use the checkerboard, and also has easily the best unis at Kentucky. That’s not a coincidence lol
