For the third time in three weeks New York Red Bulls II had a player selected to a 2017 USL Team of the Week. Florian Valot made his second Team of the Week this year with his selection into the USL Team of the Week for Week 26. Valot scored two goals and completed 32 of 40 passes in NYRB II’s 4-2 defeat against FC Cincinnati last weekend.

Valot is one of four players for NYRB II that has been selected to multiple starting lineups for the USL Team of the Week as he joined Stefano Bonomo, Junior Flemmings and Vincent Bezecourt. For NYRB II it’s the 19th time a player has been selected to a USL TOTW.
