MLS announced today that Will Bruin has been voted MLS Player of the Week by the North American Soccer Reporters.

Bruin (21 years, 187 days old) became the second youngest player in MLS history to record a hat trick and only the fourth rookie in league history to do so. He's the fifth Dynamo player to score three goals in a match (Ching-2, Davis, Jaqua) and all five at come at home. In addition, Bruin becomes the first rookie to win the Player of the Week award this season.

A big congratulations to "The Dancing Bear"!
