Louisville City midfielder Niall McCabe was named to the USL Championship Team of the Week for his performance vs. Atlanta United 2 Sunday.
McCabe had a tremendous free kick for LouCity's third goal, but he also was a tremendously effective weapon around the pitch vs. Atlanta United's midfield.
McCabe, LouCity's longest-tenured pro, had a special moment in Sunday's match when he put the ball under his shirt and waved to his pregnant wife in the stands after his free-kick goal.
