Jesse Brennan Earns Conference's Player of the Week Honor
Release: Tuesday 09/28/2010 

WALNUT CREEK, Calif. - UC San Diego goalkeeper Jesse Brennan received the Wilson/California Collegiate Athletic Association Men's Soccer Player of the Week honor for the week of Sept. 20-26, conference officials announced Tuesday.

The redshirt freshman from Los Angeles recorded two road shutouts last week as the Tritons blanked Cal State Monterey Bay Friday, 1-0, and then topped San Francisco State Sunday, 2-0.

Although Brennan needed just one save Friday to keep CSUMB scoreless, he faced plenty of pressure on Sunday against SFSU. The Gators outshot UCSD 15-9 but Brennan collected a career-high six stops en route to his third shutout of 2010. So far this season, he has totaled 25 saves.

Before Brennan earned the award Tuesday, the last Tritons' men's soccer player to receive the weekly honor was Jared Kukura for the week of Sept. 22-28, 2008.

Brennan, Kukura and the Tritons will host 16th-ranked Cal State San Bernardino on Friday at 4:30 p.m.

Wilson/CCAA Men's Soccer Player of the Week:
Aug. 30 - Sept. 5: Obi Agwu (Cal State San Bernardino); Sept. 6-12: Taylor Varnadore (Sonoma State); Sept. 13-19: Taylor Rivas (Cal State L.A.); Sept. 20-26: Jesse Brennan (UC San Diego).
