Jochmann and Cushing featured week nine

Each Wednesday through the regular season, GoBlueRaiders.com will feature a series of Q&As with members of the Middle Tennessee soccer program. Each of the 25 players will be included with most weeks profiling two student-athletes and three weeks highlighting three players. Student-athletes were selected by random draw for their respective week.
