FC Buffalo midfielder Russell Cicerone is the first Mitre National Player of the Week for the 2014 NPSL season. Cicerone won the award for the week of May 12-18, narrowly edging Chattanooga FC striker Luke Winter and Lansing United striker Matt Brown.
The Bloomfield Hills, Michigan native scored two goals and drew a free kick that led to a third goal in FCB’s first win at Erie in five years, a 4-2 decision. He also landed an assist in a 1-1 draw with AFC Cleveland on Sunday.
Cicerone is currently a freshman at the University of Buffalo.
