And now the TFC left back is being rewarded for his huge offensive night, voted as the Alcatel MLS Player of the Week by the North American Soccer Reporters (NASR) for Week 23.
Morrow, whose defensive prowess has helped Toronto rise to first place in the Supporters’ Shield standings, broke a scoreless deadlock in the 58th minute Saturday when he picked up a loose ball at the top of the box and roofed a screamer past Jeff Attinella.
He hammered home another loose ball in the 78th minute to complete his brace.
Morrow, who enjoyed a US national team stint during the CONCACAF Gold Cup this summer, has now matched his career high with five goals this season — tied for third on the team behind only Michael Bradley and Jozy Altidore.
The MLS Player of the Week is selected each week of the regular season by a panel of journalists from NASR. The group consists of members of print, television, radio and online media.
