Cleveland SC Midfielder Tom Beck Named NPSL National Player of the Week
The National Premier Soccer League (NPSL) is proud to announce Cleveland SC midfielder
Tom Beck as the third NPSL National Player of the Week for the 2019 season.
“Thank you to the NPSL for this award,” Beck said. “It’s a great honor and I’m grateful to receive
it. I’m a true believer that winning this individual award is a result of great team performances,
which is what were able to do Sunday. Without my coach and teammates this wouldn’t be
possible so a massive thanks to them as well.”
Beck scored a hat trick in a 5-1 win over Syracuse FC.
“Tom is a difference maker out there,” Cleveland SC President Samuel T. Seibert commented.
“It’s not only his skill but his presence of mind to always be in the right place at the right time.
That screamer he hit on Sunday had me screaming. He’s fun to watch.”
The Poland, Ohio native is a true NPSL veteran, having played in the league since 2014.
Perhaps his biggest accomplishment at this level was winning a NPSL national championship in
2016 before joining Cleveland SC for the 2018 and 2019 seasons.
Beck was an accomplished collegiate player, starring for both the University of Mount Union
and Cleveland State University. He was a prolific goal scorer for the Purple Raiders, finishing
with a career total of 31 goals and 13 assists.
Beck was also a standout high school athlete, earning all-state, all-region, all-district, all-county,
and all-conference honors during his time at Cardinal Mooney HS.
The winner of this national honor is determined by a vote of media members from across the
