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.

Goodrum earned 38 percent of the ballot to claim the award. 901 FC teammate Jeremy Kelly finished in second place on 25 percent after also notching a goal and assist in both of Memphis’ victories, with Kelly’s two assists moving him into the league lead with six helpers so far this season.
