Nashville SC defender Taylor Washington was named to the MLS Team of the Week bench for his week five performance against Columbus Crew.
Washington’s start against Columbus was his first action of the 2022 season. On the bench for the prior four matches, Nashville’s all-time appearance leader started in place of Dan Lovitz, who picked up a knock in training the week before.
Washington assisted the game’s only goal with a back post cross to Alex Muyl. He also recorded four clearances, four interceptions, five recoveries and created 74% of his passes.
