More Than a Number

Former Sunbirds discuss the historic significance of wearing #10, while forward Fellipe Souza talks about making the switch.

Fellipe Souza came to FPU in 2017 after spending two years at West Hills, and the Juiz de Fora, Brazil native made an immediate impact with the Blue and Orange. Souza was credited with game-winning goals against Dominican and Chaminade, both in PacWest Conference action, and he received the league’s Player of the Week award on two occasions. He also recorded a hat trick and added an assist in FPU’s 5-1 victory over Academy of Art in the same season. After finishing the season with 26 points and a team-best 11 goals, Souza was selected as the PacWest Newcomer of the Year in 2017.

He medically redshirted last fall but was still chosen as a Preseason All-PacWest forward ahead of the 2019 campaign.
