NWC Offensive Student-Athlete of the Week for Sept. 24 - 30

Jake Baker
Linfield, Sophomore
McMinnville, Ore./Western Oregon U.

Baker tallied three goals to help Linfield pick up two Northwest Conference wins over George Fox and Pacific. The Wildcats' leading scorer (five goals in 2012) converted two penalty kicks, one in each game, and also finished from about six yards out to spark the Linfield offense just four and a half minutes into the match against the Boxers. Baker is now a perfect 4-for-4 on penalty kicks this season. Linfield has more than doubled its win total and scoring output from last season with five wins and 13 goals through nine games.
