News out of Charlotte today was very positive for Colorado Rapids loanee Marlon Hairston as he was named USL Player of the Week.

For Hairston he becomes the second consecutive Rapids player to be named USL Player of the Week after goalkeeper John Berner was awarded for his 6 save clean sheet effort in defeating Louisville City FC.

This is great news for both of these players as they are getting that valuable playing time that they may not have had here in Commerce City.  And for Hairston, this award comes as he was playing along the Independence back line.  There was significant talk of Hairston converting to a right back in preseason with the Rapids and, so far, it looks like a great move for him.

Congratulations to both Berner and Hariston on their well deserved recognition.
