Chicago Fire midfielder Marco Pappa was named the Major League Soccer Player of the Week for Week 29 of the MLS season on Monday. Pappa netted a hat trick in Chicago's 3-0 win over Real Salt Lake in midweek before also contributing to a 1-1 draw with the Houston Dynamo over the weekend.

Those results have left Chicago three points adrift in the race for a playoff spot, while giving the Guatemalan eight goals on the season, which ranks second on the team. Chicago has gone 5-1-and-1 in its last seven games to climb up the table in the Eastern Conference, while Pappa becomes the first Fire player this season to be named Player of the Week.
