With his consistent performance at the collegiate level, soccer player Devin O’Hea has earned the title of the Great Northwest Athletic Conference Player of the Year.

O’Hea’s dominant play in the regular season has the North Vancouver product record at least one point in 10 of 11 matches against conference competition, leading Simon Fraser University to its eighth conference title.

The senior forward and team captain started every match this season and logged 1,400 minutes as part of the top-ranked offence in the GNAC. O’Hea generated nine multi-point games, including a seven-match goal-scoring streak.

Heading into the NCAA Super Region 4 Championships, O’Hea had nine goals and nine assists. But the SFU Red Leafs championship run ended quickly, with a 3-1 loss to Point Loma in Los Angeles.

The Red Leafs ended their 2023 campaign with an 11-5-2 overall record (8-2-1 in the GNAC) and as conference champs for the first time since 2018.
