Male Athlete of the Week: Filipe Vilela (Men’s Soccer)

In his first game as a Husky, the 6’2” striker found the back of the net and was the focal point of Conestoga’s defensive efforts in a season opening 2-0 road win. A League1 Ontario all-star with the Oakville Blue Devils, Vilela (Toronto, ON) looks well on his way to asserting himself among the province's most dangerous frontline players. He led League1 with 20 goals in 2015 and was the Golden Boot winner; alongside Shaquille Agard (seven regular season goals in 2016, OCAA All-Star) and Jerome Baker, George Brown looks to have a potent attack.

Female Athlete of the Week: Cynthia Pellegrino (Women’s Soccer)

A second-year Husky, Pellegrino (Mississauga, ON) scored George Brown soccer’s first goal of the 2017 season in Saturday’s season opener. The 5’3” midfielder was solid throughout the day, and figures to play a crucial role on both sides of the ball this season. Playing with Julia Kassner and Effie Takas, George Brown appears solid up the middle of the field. The Huskies soccer programs host their home openers this Wednesday against UTM (7 and 9pm, Birchmount Stadium).
