Silva Named To National Team of the Week

Desert Speed School alum Tommy Silva, now a junior left back for the #15-ranked UCLA men’s soccer team, was named to the College News Team of the Week, according to a press release from the Pac-12.

LOS ANGELES – UCLA junior left back Tommy Silva has been named to the College Soccer News Team of the Week.

Silva helped the Bruins to a 1-0-1 weekend at Stanford and California, the program’s first unbeaten road trip to the Bay Area Pac-12 schools since 2013.

The Tucson, Ariz. native was a two-way difference-maker last week, helping UCLA keep a clean sheet at Stanford on Thursday before assisting on both of the Bruins’ goals in a 2-1 win at Cal on Sunday.

The shutout was UCLA’s third of the season, second-most in the Pac-12 Conference. Sunday’s performance in Berkeley represented the first multi-assist game in Silva’s collegiate career.
