HAMDEN, Conn. – Quinnipiac women’s soccer senior Furtuna Velaj was recently recognized on www.AllWhiteKit.com, a women’s soccer website. Velaj, one of the Bobcats’ top offensive players, was listed as one of the site’s top potential draft picks in the country. The Stamford, Conn. native also received recognition as one of the top forwards in its preseason shortlists.

Velaj was ranked #29 on the website’s list of pre-NCAA season rankings of senior pro prospects, among the top collegiate players across the country. The senior was also listed as one of the country’s top-50 forwards in women’s collegiate soccer.

Velaj looks to lead Quinnipiac in the upcoming 2011 season after leading the Bobcats in points (19), goals (7) and assists (5) last year. Velaj earned her third All-NEC first team honor in 2010 and was named adidas/NEC Player of the Week twice as a junior.
