Hoffman was also named the Soccer News College Player of the Week for a second consecutive week.

Hoffman produced a hat trick Sept. 16 to lead the Bruins to a 3-2 come-from-behind victory over rival UC Santa Barbara.

Overall, Hoffman has scored seven goals in his last six games for the Bruins and leads the team with 14 points. Hoffman also has an astounding 13 goals in his last 13 games as a Bruin.
