Harter Named Mitre National Player of the Week


AFC Cleveland midfielder Skye Harter has been selected as the 12th Mitre National Player of the Week for the 2016 NPSL season.  

Harter scored a hat trick in AFC Cleveland’s 4-2 win over the Erie Commodores.  The win helped the Royals remain atop the Great Lakes East Conference.

Harter has played a hand in five of Cleveland’s last eight goals in league play, for a total of three goals and two assists. Including friendlies, Harter has tallied three goals and three assists so far this season.

“I think Skye has done really well this season,” AFC Cleveland head coach Carter Poe commented. “He’s very technical.  He’s very good on the ball.  He has produced a lot of goals and assists now.  He has a ton of potential, especially considering he is only 19.”

The Copley, Ohio native is currently a redshirt freshman with the University of Akron men’s soccer program.  Harter was a standout at Copley HS before joining the Zips.  He earned First Team All-Ohio honors at Copley after registering 19 goals and 18 assists for a total of 56 points his senior season.

“I am really honored to receive this award,” Harter added. “It means a lot to me because the NPSL is a highly competitive league.  I would like to thank my teammates and the entire AFC Cleveland coaching staff as I couldn’t have done this without them.”

The Mitre National Player of the Week is announced every Friday during the regular season.  The winner of this national honor is determined by a vote of media members from across the country.
