Clarksville, Ark. - University of the Ozarks senior goalkeeper Brian Sarber was named the American Southwest Conference men's soccer Defensive Player of the Week, the league office announced Monday.
The 6-foot-5, 230-pound Allen, Texas, product played 110 minutes of shutout defense with four saves as the #24 Eagles tied Harding University 0-0 on Saturday. With Sarber’s shutout, the Eagles remain unbeaten on the season.
He is among the ASC leaders in goals against average (0.57), saves (21) and shutouts (2).
The recognition marks the fourth time that Sarber has won the conference defensive nod. In 2007, he was voted the ASC Defensive Player of the Year and was named to the NSCAA All-Region Team, All-ASC First Team and ESPN The Magazine Academic All-America Team. He was voted the 2008 ASC Preseason Defensive Player of the Year by the conference coaches and sports information directors.
Ozarks (4-0-1, 0-0-0) will begin ASC play this Saturday when they host UT-Dallas at 3:00 p.m.
