PROVO, Utah – Freshman middle blocker Felipe de Brito Ferreira has been named the Sports Imports/AVCA Player of the Week, the organization announced Tuesday.

In his first-ever two starts last week, Ferreira collected career highs to help BYU men’s volleyball remain perfect in MPSF play.

In a five-set come-from-behind win against No. 8 Pepperdine, he collected a career-high 10 blocks – two more than any BYU player in any match this season and four more than any teammate in the match. Ferreira also added a career-high six kills on a career-high .714 clip.

Then in a sweep of No. 3 UCLA, he put up a match-high six blocks – three more than any other player on either team. Ferreira also added four kills without any errors while hitting at a .500 clip in the upset win.

This is Ferreira’s first AVCA honor of his career and second for the Cougars as a team this season.

Ferreira was previously named Monday the Off the Block Freshman of the Week and the MPSF Defensive Player of the Week.
