Christian Herrera Named Player of the Week for Week 28
Colorado Springs, CO - The Colorado Springs Switchbacks FC and the USL Championship officially announced today that Christian Herrera has been named the Player of the Week for Week 28 of the 2023 season, presented by Konami eFootball.
Christian Herrera earned his spot as player of the week with his incredible performance on Saturday's match against Orange County SC. Herrera made a total of five saves when being challenged by Orange County FC just in the first half.
A notable save from Herrera was in the 30â² when Orange County player #7 Milan Iloski shot the ball outside the 18, and Herrera swiftly dove into the corner of the net denying the goal-scoring opportunity.
The 26-year-old equaled his single-game high for saves this season against Orange County SC, having also posted an eight-save shutout in the Switchbacks' 2-0 victory against Las Vegas Lights FC on June 17.
The Colorado Springs Switchbacks will be back at Weidner Field on September 23rd for Noche Latina night as they go against Sacramento Republic FC!
