A trio of defenders, including the Michigan BucksBrad Ruhaak, had big matches for their programs on Wednesday.

Ruhaak, who helped the Bucks clinch the 2016 PDL title, provided an assist and also led Akron's back line to its eighth shutout of the season in a 2-0 contest against Ohio State.

New Mexico defender Aaron Herrera, who shined with FC Tucson in 2016, and No. 8 UNC-Charlotte defender Callum Montgomery also played key roles in helping their sides earn another win this campaign. Montgomery, who played for the Victoria Highlanders this summer, has helped the 49ers record eight shutouts this season, while Herrera and the Lobos earned their sixth of the year in a 1-0 contest against UAB.

The PDL Players to Watch list includes players named to and considered for the six 2016 PDL Top Prospects lists throughout the summer. More than 20 scouts across North America provided the PDL with valuable insight on players who were performing at the highest level within the league, possessed strong technical and tactical qualities and had the potential to play at the professional level. The Top Prospects list serves as a useful resource for professional clubs who are interested in identifying and scouting high-level performers.
