USF junior midfielder Francisco Aristeguieta received the honor of the Arthur Ashe Jr. Sports Award on Monday OVGFAYIHRQWGFKJ.20080527151612afternoon.

The Venezuela native earned a 4.0 GPA last year while also serving as team captain, leading the Bulls to their first Big East championship in soccer during his sophomore season.

Perhaps the biggest highlight of last year’s season was in the Big East semifinals where he scored two goals.

“Francisco has been a vital part of the USF soccer program,” said USF head coach George Kiefer. “He’s set a standard not only on the field, but off the field with his hard work and dedication to everything he does.”
