NEWPORT NEWS, Va. – Saint Joseph's freshman defender Daniel Morales has been selected the Atlantic 10 Co-Rookie of the Week, it was announced on Monday afternoon. The honor, shared with Saint Louis midfielder Patrick Wilkinson, marks the first of the rookie's collegiate career.

Morales played a significant role in SJU's 1-0-1 week last week, playing the full 93:18 in SJU's 2-1 overtime win over Manhattan on Wednesday evening and the full 110:00 in SJU's scoreless draw at VMI on Saturday.

Morales has made an immediate impact on SJU's back line this fall and is one of just four Hawks to lpay all 493 minutes on the season at this point.

Morales and the Hawks are in the midst of a three-match road stretch and return to action at Sacred Heart on Tuesday, September 12. Kickoff at Park Avenue Field in Fairfield, Conn. is slated for 4:00 p.m.
