SSN Boys Soccer Postseason Player of the Week

David Tuschmann, Colts Neck

The 2021 season was a roller coaster for Tuschmann and Colts Neck, but when Tuschmann was on the field, the Cougars always knew what they were getting.

The senior striker returned from an injury in time to get right for the state tournament and proceeded to score three goals and dish out an assist over two games last week. He started off by scoring in a 2-1 win over Robbinsville in the opening round of the Central Jersey Group II Tournament. Tuschmann then came back with two goals and assisted another in a wild 5-4 loss at top-seeded Hopewell Valley, nearly carrying the Cougars into the sectional semifinals with a big upset win that ended up a near miss.

Despite missing a significant chunk in the middle of the season, Tuschmann finished the season with 12 goals and wound up with 37 goals over the past two seasons and more than 100 points during his entire career.

Tuschmann won the final Player of the Week award of the season with 36 percent of the vote, beating out runner-up Tommy Chyzowych, with the Holmdel goalkeeper racking up 24 percent of the vote.
