Though FGCU men’s soccer left UCF with a 3-1 victory, the team did not return home unscathed. In the 3rd minute of the 1st half freshman defender, Thomas DelPlace, suffered a broken leg.
Coming into this game, DelPlace played an average of 75 minutes per game with three starts. This promising young defender hails from Toulouse, France and also plays for Toulouse Football Club.
Looking forward, he will have surgery performed by Medical Director & Head Team Physician, Dr. James Guerra.
As he misses the remainder of the season, we all wish Thomas a speedy and healthy recovery.
