Orlando City SC defender Tyler Turner was named to the USL PRO Team of the Week for Week 18, the league announced on Tuesday. Wilmington Hammerheads FC goalkeeper Quillan Roberts was named Player of the Week after back-to-back shutouts last week.

Turner didn’t score or anything, because nobody did in the 0-0 draw with Sacramento Republic FC last Thursday, but he was a strong rock on the back line for Orlando City, getting on the ball to make plays and help keep Sacramento off of the score sheet.
The 18-year-old Turner was one of Orlando City’s five original MLS signings, and is making big strides on the field each an every week. The kid has a bright future, and could be a big time player for Orlando down the road. Adama Mbengue and Rob Valentino were also given honorable mentions by USL PRO.
