MELBOURNE, FL - Florida Southern men's lacrosse student-athlete, Joe Appio was named Sunshine State Conference Offensive player of the week as announced by the conference office Monday afternoon. Appio becomes the third Moccasin to win the player of the week honors for 2019 and the second in as many weeks. Austen Lison earned defensive honors last week.
Appio recorded 10 points in the Mocs 19-10 victory at Palm Beach Atlantic on Saturday. He had four goals and six assists, picked up five groundballs and caused a turnover in the win. With 50 seconds remaining in the second quarter, Appio took a feed from Lison and put away the eventual game-winning goal to put the Mocs up 11-5 at the half.
Appio and Mocs are back in action hosting Tampa on Wednesday, April 3 at 7 p.m.
