Charlotte 49ers men’s soccer senior goalkeeper Klay Davis was named Conference USA Defensive Player of the Week after his performance last week.

Davis recorded his first shutout of the season and the 21st of his career helping the 49ers to a 2-0 season opening road victory at Denver last Friday. He recorded two saves in the game.

This marked the second weekly honor that Davis has earned in his career. Last season, he was named to TopDrawerSoccer.com’s National Team of the Week (October 29) after helping the 49ers record road shutouts at Saint Louis and Butler.

Davis and the rest of the 15th-ranked Charlotte 49ers men’s soccer team hosts UNCG in their home opener tonight, Tuesday, September 3 at 7 pm.
