ATLANTA – Anchoring a strong defensive effort than enabled Concordia-Irvine to pull an upset over the weekend, Eagles defenseman Braden Schneider has been named the MCLA Division I Warrior Player of the Week for the period ending Feb. 20.
Concordia-Irvine headed to No. 6 Cal Poly on Saturday and the Corona, Calif., native was up to the task. He finished with six caused turnovers and four ground balls as the Eagles held the Mustangs to just six goals in an 11-6 victory.
“Braden has brought a toughness to our defense that everyone has adopted,” said Concordia-Irvine coach Jesse Foss. “In the Cal Poly game, he was able to impose his will and set the tone for the entire defense.”
For his efforts earning the Warrior Player of the Week, Schneider will receive either a Warrior Burn XP-D – a $100 value – for his efforts. Warrior is a proud sponsor of the MCLA.
