Men's College Player Of The Week: Sean Yacoubian, Saint Mary's

Top-ranked Saint Mary's knocked off No. 4 BYU 37-29 in Provo, Utah, this past Saturday in part by pushing the pace of the game and using all of its weapons.

At the center of all of that was scrumhalf Sean Yacoubian, who is our Men's College Player of the Week.

Yacoubian has been assuming goalkicking duties, as well, but the tenacious No. 9 has helped the Gaels work the phases brilliantly by finding the right forward to burst onto the ball or using that big man as a decoy and sending it wide to the backs.

SMC head coach Tim O'Brien is happy with Yacoubian's performance, but he also has options at that position. Tom Brusati, in fact, captained the Saint Mary's B-side that beat BYU's B-side on Friday and will start this coming weekend against Cal Poly.

It's a case of how fast O'Brien wants his team to play: Brusati can really push the pace, while Yacoubian can battle for the ball when the game is slower.

"Sean had 80 touches for us against BYU," O'Brien said. "And he kicked for us, too. He had 80 touches and no turnovers. Sometimes we start Tom because we need to speed some things up. But against BYU, to be able to avoid turnovers like that is crucial."
