The American Athletic Conference (AAC) announced on Tuesday, November 5, that Reggae Girl Konya Plummer is its Defensive Player of the Year in the sport of football (soccer).

In her final year at the University of Central Florida (UCF) in Orlando, the St. Mary native had a stellar season – starting in 16 out of the 17 regular matches for the UCF Knights.

Plummer played a collective total of 1,485 minutes on the field, and as a major part of UCF Knights’ solid back line, was critical in the team conceding just seven goals.

“Who could it be but you lord?????. Defensive player of the year⚽⚽⚽⚽⚽,” the number six UCF Knight defender posted on her Instagram page.
