Centenary's Diego Hernandez was named the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference Men's Soccer Defensive Player of the Week on Monday, September 30.

Hernandez (Carrollton, Texas), a sophomore defender, led a Gents back line that posted three shutouts last week at home. He played 250 of the 270 minutes in wins over Hendrix, Austin College, and the University of Dallas.

"I am extremely happy for Diego, said Gents head coach Kyle Symczak. "He has really played well this season and I don't think I've ever seen someone time a tackle like he does. Diego is a team-first player and it's great to have a competitor like him in our program."
