Senior defender Wesley Charpie was named one of 10 finalists for the 2014 Senior CLASS Award for men’s soccer.
The award is given to the athlete that best exemplifies excellence in community, classroom, character and competition.
The senior defender has a 3.4 GPA and is planning on graduating in December with a degree in relation communications. He was named to the AAC All-Academic Team last season.
Charpie has started all 74 games of his USF career and is also the active leader in points (29) and game-winning goals (5).
“I think you see Wes and on the field he’s an excellent player, and then off the field, if you ever have a chance to spend time with him, he’s a fun guy to be around and I think it’s deserved,” coach George Kiefer said in a press release.
Charpie was originally part of a pool of 30 candidates in September. A media committee recently narrowed that pool down to 10 finalists.
The winner will be announced at the 2014 Men’s College Cup in Cary, North Carolina, in December.
