He was just one of 11 players to stand out from the crowd on the TDS Team of the Week. Check out who joined him.

TDS Player of the Week: Gordon Wild, USC Upstate
TDS Team of the Week (Sept. 13-20):
GK Tyler Blackmer, Wright State: The junior goalkeeper made five saves on Sunday for Wright State in a 1-0 overtime win over Cleveland State. He was also in goal for Wrigth State’s 3-1 win over West Virginia last week.
D Nicholas O'Callaghan, Elon: The freshman defender had a goal and an assist for Elon in a 3-1 win over Drexel to open up league play over the weekend. O’Callaghan was also a key piece of the Elon squad that defeated Wake Forest 1-0 during the midweek game.

M Noah Keats, Incarnate Word: Keats scored a hat trick for Incarnate Word in a 8-1 win over Central Arkansas last week. The senior midfielder scored the first three goals of the game and put it out of reach before the horn for halftime.
F Niko Hansen, New Mexico: Hansen had two goals last week as the Lobos rolled to a pair of wins. Hansen scored the lone goal in a 1-0 win over Missouri State on Friday.
