SF Deltas’ Tommy Heinemann earns Player of the Week for a second time

The North American Soccer League has named San Francisco Deltas’ forward Tommy Heinemann the Player of the Week. Heinemann recently secured the Deltas’ 2-0 win over Puerto Rico FC by scoring both goals in the home game Sunday night.

His strikes helped the SF Deltas stay within four points of Miami FC, which leads the league in the final two weeks of the spring season. The two goals scored by Heinemann, along with Miami FC’s loss to North Carolina FC, shrunk the difference between first and second place to only four points.

The veteran from St. Louis isn’t a stranger to multi-goal games or being named Player of the Week. He earned the honor in week-three of the Spring Season after scoring twice against North Carolina FC.

Although he had a slow start in soccer after walking onto a Division-II school and facing injury setbacks such as a torn ACL, he has now played every tier of American soccer. He began in the Premier Development League, then he played in the United Soccer League. After briefly playing on three Major League Soccer teams, he now competes in the NASL. With 26 career NASL goals, playing for three different teams, Heinemann has built a reputation across the league of being a power forward.

The Deltas made it into the fourth round of the Open Cup and are ranked second in the league in their inaugural season. He currently leads the the team with six goals and is tied for second in the league with most goals this season.

The Deltas’ final games of the season are against first ranked Miami FC. The fight to win the spring season championship begins Saturday, July 8 in Miami and the season concludes with a home game on July 15 at Kezar Stadium.
