Memphis, Tenn. – Memphis 901 FC defender Jelani Peters was named to the USL Championship Team of the Week for Week 16 of the 2023 regular season, the league announced on Tuesday.
Peters earns his first Team of the Week honor after recording a goal in the club’s 4-0 victory over FC Tulsa and planted himself as a key defensive piece as Memphis grabbed seven points in seven days. The Trinidad and Tobago international won 14 of 18 duels and 6 of 7 aerial duels while blocking four shots and making seven clearances.
