October 2017 will be a month not to forget for America based Banyana Banyana forward Jermaine Seoposenwe.
Seoposenwe did not only wrack up her third Player of the Week award of the season -for her nine goals so far this campaign, and also named the Southern Conference [SoCon] Player of the Year for a second straight year, she also became Samford Soccer's all-time leading scorer thanks to her strike against VMI Keydets.

Congrats to our very own Jermaine Seoposenwe for being named the SoCon Player of the Year for a second straight year!!!#SamfordStrong pic.twitter.com/pHm2szyFzG — Samford Soccer (@SamfordSoccer) October 31, 2017
The 24-year-old from Cape Town in the Western Cape scored now 35 five goals for the Alabama university side and eclipsed former Bulldog-great Malcanisha Kelley's record of 34, which she set last year during her senior season.
Seoposenwe, a Business Studies graduate, began her four-year tenure at Samford University in 2014 and believes that her switch from University of Western Cape Ladies has been a beneficial one for her career.
“We all have grown tremendously together in so many ways," She told Samford Soccer.
"I do not really look at how the team has changed because that is inevitable.
"But I look at how I have changed and if it has been for the better which I hope it has.
What I appreciate the most is what I have learnt from my teammates and coaches.
“I appreciate individual awards but I could care less about them because I just want to win championship titles with Samford.
"As that will be a true reflection of our ability and how hard we all work as a collective.”
Seoposenwe is expected to assemble for international duty in January as Banyana will take on Sweden in a friendly match to be played in Cape Town early next year.
