CHICAGO -- Eclipse Select Soccer Club alum and Ohio State senior defender David Tiemstra (Clarendon Hills, Ill./Hinsdale Central) was named the Big Ten Conference Defensive Player of the Year, the conference announced Thursday.

Tiemstra, who also was included on this year's All-Big Ten First Team, led an Ohio State defensive group that allowed only 20 goals in 18 regular-season matches, and only seven goals in six Big Ten games. This marks Tiemstra's second straight Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year honor.

  1. David Timestra played 1 season for Eclipse as a U18. He played the previous 8 seasons with HUSA. To claim him as an Eclipse alum is a joke. He is a HUSA alum when it comes to his youth soccer career.
