San Antonio FC Defender Mitchell Taintor Named to USL Championship Team of the Week
SAN ANTONIO - San Antonio FC defender Mitchell Taintor has been named to the USL Championship Team of the Week, the league announced today.
Taintor scored and helped keep a clean sheet in Saturday's 2-0 road win over Miami FC. Taintor's goal was his third of the season, marking a career best for the centerback.
