TAMPA, Fla. - USL League One announced the Team of the Week Presented by Cleer Audio for Week 14 of the 2020 regular season on Tuesday, with FC Tucson forward Josh Coan named Player of the Week for scoring both of his team’s goals in a 2-0 win over Orlando City B on Saturday night at Kino North Stadium.
The 22-year-old Coan scored at the tail end of both halves as Tucson finished its 2020 season on a high note. The brace brought him level with Shak Adams as the club’s leading scorers for the year with four goals each.
Following Union Omaha’s crucial 2-1 win over Greenville Triumph SC on Sunday, the Owls lead all teams with four players represented in the Team of the Week.

D - Jordan Skelton, South Georgia Tormenta FC: Skelton was the anchor of a Tormenta defense which shut down Golden Boot leader Emiliano Terzaghi and the Richmond Kickers on Saturday. In South Georgia’s shutout win, Skelton won 6 of 7 duels, 4 of 5 aerial duels, made five clearances and completed 38 of 49 passes.

F - Josh Coan, FC Tucson: Coan scored in first-half stoppage time and in the 90th minute to propel Tucson past Orlando City B on Saturday, an excellent end to what has been a strong second half of the season for the young striker.
