DiNicolo named player of the week

Anthony DiNicolo

Maple Ridge’s Anthony DiNicolo was named Great Northwest Athletic Conference Player of the Week thanks to his strong defensive play last week for the Simon Fraser University Clan against Grand Canyon.

DiNicolo, a senior engineering student at SFU, helped the Clan to a pair shut-outs last week as they defeated the GCU Antelopes on Sept. 11, before beating the Trinity Lutheran College Eagles 6-0.

“Anthony was fantastic for us at the back this past week,” said head coach Alan Koch.

“He helped settle our back four in the final thirty minutes against Grand Canyon and helped preserve a big victory. He has grown into a silent leader and has started off his senior year full of confidence.”

DiNicolo is coming off a stellar junior campaign that saw him named an Academic All-American by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA), in addition to being named to the Great Northwest Athletic Conference Academic Team thanks to his 3.49 GPA.

DiNicolo was a critical member of last season’s 19-2-0 Clan team, and has started all five SFU games this season, helping the team to a 5-0 record, with only one goal against.
