Western Washington University defender Marcus Tinsley has been named the Great Northwest Athletic Conference Men’s Soccer Defensive Player of the Week for Sept. 14-20.
Tinsley, a freshman from Federal Way where he attended Todd Beamer High School, led a Viking defense that shut out Notre Dame de Namur, 1-0, and tied nationally No. 17-ranked Simon Fraser, 1-1 in overtime.
“He played outside back for us and did a really good job,” WWU coach Greg Brisbon said in a news release. “He won the one-on-one chances which helped us out a lot, especially against Simon Fraser.”
