Former University of South Florida men’s soccer standout Jeff Attinella, no stranger to weekly conference honors during his time with the Bulls, has collected his first on the professional level.

The FC Tampa Bay goalkeeper was named the North American Soccer League’s Defender of the Week following his performance in his team’s 3-0 win Saturday over the Montreal Impact.

Attinella, thrust into the starting job a few weeks ago when Daryl Sattler suffered a torn ACL, made 11 saves against the Impact, including seven in the second half, to earn his first career victory.

Over his past two games, Attinella has allowed just one goal. He owns a 1.29 goals against average through four games (three starts) this season.
