    TAMPA, Fla. - USL League One announced on Monday the Team of the Week Presented by Cleer Audio for Week 20 of the 2021 regular season, with FC Tucson forward Giovanni Calixtro named Player of the Week after scoring a hat trick against Fort Lauderdale CF, leading his side to a 4-0 win at DRV PNK Stadium on Sunday night. Calixtro opened the scoring on six minutes, polishing off a brilliant team move with a clever finish to the far post. He doubled his tally with a close-range strike 20 minutes later, and rounded off his hat trick early in the second half with an instinctive goal in the box.

Most importantly, he’s a proven professional who has logged over 3000 minutes in the USL Championship at just 20-years-old. We are thrilled to welcome him to Tucson.”
