Four additional players named to Team of the Week
TAMPA, Fla. – The USL Championship announced the Team of the Week for Week 11 of the 2022 regular season on Tuesday, with Memphis 901 FC forward Phillip Goodrum voted the Championship Player of the Week presented by Konami eFootball after notching two goals and two assists across his side’s two victories over the past seven days, which sent Memphis into first place in the Eastern Conference.
The Tennessee native joined Memphis this offseason and has quickly fit into the club’s new-look lineup, leading 901 FC with five goals so far this campaign. Over the past week, the 24-year-old notched a goal and assist first in Memphis’ 5-0 victory at home on Wednesday night against the LA Galaxy II, and then again in a 3-0 win on Sunday night on the road against Loudoun United FC as 901 FC ran its winning streak to four games to pass Louisville City FC and Detroit City FC for first place in the Eastern Conference standings.
“I’m thrilled to be named Player of the Week but even happier with how the team is performing at the moment,” Goodrum said. “Everyone on our roster is going above and beyond and we just need to keep this momentum going forward as we get ready for Atlanta [United 2].”
The Championship’s Player of the Week is selected by the USL National Media Panel, which is made up of representatives from each media market in the Championship. This week, three Memphis 901 FC players made USL Championship Team of the Week, with two additional players an honorable mention.
“I’m thrilled for Phillip and our five players that have been honored with awards this week,” Head Coach Ben Pirmann said. “These awards are indicative of the team’s performances, and we are all excited to be on the positive side of the results right now.”
In addition to Phillip Goodrum, four other players earned spots on the USL Championship Team of the Week for week 11.
D – Patrick Seagrist, Memphis 901 FC: Seagrist recorded a pair of assists in Memphis’ 5-0 victory against the LA Galaxy II last Wednesday night and over two outings completed 41 of 49 passes and notched four chances created.
M – Jeremy Kelly, Memphis 901 FC: Kelly recorded a goal and assist in each of Memphis’ outings as 901 FC took victories against the LA Galaxy II and Loudoun United FC, moving to a league-leading six assists so far this season as Memphis moved into first place in the Eastern Conference.
