Crowned the Big West Offensive Player of the Year for the second consecutive time and just the fifth player in Big West history to be selected First Team All-America by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA), junior forward Nick DePuy had one of the most prolific seasons in the nation in 2015. In addition to leading the conference in goals (15), total points (31) and shots (80), DePuy was best in the clutch as he led both the nation and conference with eight game-winning goals and is currently third all-time in Big West history with 14 career game-winners. The Gauchos’ sharpshooter also tied for third in the nation in scoring with 15 goals. Becoming the first player in Big West history to earn three straight Big West Offensive Player of the Week awards this season, DePuy’s impact on the field is inevitable as Santa Barbara is 16-0-4 all-time when the forward scores a goal.
