UCF athletics has had an impressive week in the American Athletic Conference, and took home some honors to prove it. In total, the Knights had five players praised by the American Athletic Conference, each walking away with player of the week awards.
Defensive back Jacoby Glenn was named the conference's Defensive Player of the Week for football. Glenn forced a fumble, made four tackles and intercepted a pass in UCF's homecoming win over Temple. It was the third straight game in which Glenn had an interception after recording just two total last season.
In men's soccer, junior Mason Miller led UCF to its first conference win of the year on his way to earning Offensive Player of the Week honors. He scored two goals and an assist in the game. The goals were the first two of his career.
Women's soccer is where UCF really brought home the gold. In the same week in which it clinched the regular season AAC title, the Knights brought home AAC Player of the Week honors for offensive, defensive and goalkeeper of the week.
Forward Tatiana Coleman won the Offensive Player of the Week award for the fourth time this year, which is the most in the conference. Coleman scored on a penalty kick on Friday night versus East Carolina and scored twice on Sunday against Cincinnati, helping UCF to win both games.
Defender Carleigh Williams won the defensive conference award for the second time this year. With Williams playing at centerback for the Knights, they've only allowed one goal at home all season.
Goalkeeper Connie Organ was named AAC Goalkeeper of the Week for the third time. With Organ in net, UCF shut out opponents 11 times this year, which is the second most times in UCF history for a goalkeeper in a single season.
After a pair of shutouts this week, UCF closed out its regular season schedule winning 12 of its last 13 and allowing only three goals in the process.
