MEMPHIS, Tenn. – Memphis 901 FC forward Phillip Goodrum was named the USL Championship Player of the Week presented by Konami eFootball for Week 27, the league announced on Tuesday.
Goodrum notched his second Player of the Week award of the season after his first career hat trick on September 7 against his former club Atlanta United 2. Goodrum scored twice in the final minutes of the first half before completing his hat trick six minutes after the halftime break.

“Phil is going from strength to strength every week. We are proud of the team and proud of how he continues to lead our line,” Assistant Sporting Director Caleb Patterson Sewell said. “We look forward to him continuing his success as we move into playoffs.”
Goalkeeper Trey Muse also received a Team of the Week honorable mention after his seventh clean sheet of the season in the 4-0 victory over Atlanta United 2 during Week 27.
