It’s been a happy season for Charlie Dennis, Tucson FC’s sophomore midfielder, leader of the Men In Black’s prolific offensive.

25-year-old Dennis ranks third in USL League One in terms of assists in this weekend’s games, one behind the two leaders with six assists; he’s also 28th in goals with three.

“He worked very hard to make the other players stand out and I think he is really enjoying his football now,” said Jon Pearlman, Tucson FC interim coach. “And Charlie is best when he feels the joy of the game.”

Tucson FC (8-8-5) is in South Carolina, playing USL League One defending champion Greenville Triumph SC on Sunday at 4 p.m. PDL regular season.

During their streak, the men in black have scored a goal difference of plus nine.

“We scored some great goals and created a lot of chances and I’m sure the teams will be scared when they see the team summary we publish every week,” said Dennis.

FC Tucson are fourth in the USL League One, just one point behind Greenville Triumph SC (8-7-6).

On Friday, Tucson FC was number one in the league with 31 goals. Tucson FC beat the triumph 2-1 at home on August 28th
