Austin College men’s soccer player Joseph Khalaf has been named the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference Defensive Player of the Week.


Khalaf, a junior goalkeeper from Sherman, made 10 saves in two matches, including seven in a 2-1 victory over the University of Texas-Dallas, the defending American Southwest Conference champions.


That win was the first for the ‘Roos over the Comets since 2005.


Khalaf followed up that performance by earning a shared shutout in a 3-0 win against George Fox, making three saves in the first half.
