Shinyashiki and DeVoss Take Summit League Player of the Week Awards
Andre Shinyashiki earns second-straight weekly honor, DeVoss leads back-four to shutout win
Oct. 23, 2017
ELMHURST, Ill. – Junior Andre Shinyashiki (Sao Paulo, Brazil) has been named the Summit League Offensive Player of the Week and redshirt-junior Scott DeVoss (Centennial, Colo.) has been named the Summit League Defensive Player of the Week, the league office announced on Monday.
Shinyashiki earned the weekly honor for the second-consecutive week and the second time in his career after netting his second-straight brace in Denver’s 2-0 win at Oral Roberts on Saturday. The Denver junior has scored five times in the last three matches and is tied for the league-lead in goals with eight on the year. Saturday night’s game-winner was the eighth of his career, tying him with Collin Audley for second in Denver’s Division I history.
DeVoss helped lead a backline that allowed only one shot on goal or less for the third-consecutive Summit League match in Denver’s road win over Oral Roberts. The Denver centerback made a sliding block on a clear scoring chance in the 53rd minute to preserve Denver’s 1-0 lead at the time.
UP NEXT: The Pioneers will close out a four-match road swing with a mid-week clash on Wednesday at former MPSF rivals New Mexico (7 p.m. MT).
