COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (GoThunderWolves.com - Oct. 26, 2010) - CSU-Pueblo junior goalkeeper Jacob Blum (Jr., Peoria, Ariz.) was named the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference Defensive Player of the Week Tuesday after helping the Pack to a tie with defending national champion, Fort Lewis.
Blum equalled the school record for saves in a match with 16, in a double overtime 1-1 tie Sunday afternoon. The tie helped CSU-Pueblo clinch a spot in the RMAC playoffs and keep hope alive for the ThunderWolves to host an RMAC playoff game.
So far in 2010, Blum has 67 saves, third most in the RMAC, and his 6.7 saves per game are the second most in the conference. He is also ranked sixth in the RMAC with two shutouts this season.
Blum, who is enjoying his first ever RMAC Player of the Week honor, becomes the first ThunderWolf this season to claim be named RMAC Player of the Week. The last time CSU-Pueblo had a player named offensive or defensive player of the week since current CSU-Pueblo assistant coach, Erik Andersen, earned the honor on Sept. 15, 2009.
