CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - Brian Rogers of the Harvard men's soccer team is the COOP Athlete of the Week for Sept. 7, 2010. Rogers gave the 10th-ranked Harvard men’s soccer team the lead for good in each of its two victories on the season’s opening weekend.

His tie-breaking tally in the 80th minute of Saturday’s opener against No. 13 Stanford secured a 2-1 win in head coach Carl Junot’s first game at the helm and sent the crowd of 3,221 fans home happy. Rogers helped Harvard take control in Monday’s win at Massachusetts by scoring in the fourth minute of the second half to break another 1-1 tie.
