Two goals and a run of impressive displays ensured the Whites went four games unbeaten at the beginning of March as the 19-year-old enhanced his ever-growing reputation at full-back.
Having only made his first-team debut under previous manager Neil Warnock in a Capital One Cup clash at the beginning of this season, Byram spoke conservatively about his accolade.
"Overall, I'm happy with my form this season," the defender admitted. "I've made a few mistakes but learnt and got better from them. I am looking to improve."
Leeds manager Brian McDermott had nothing but praise for Byram's displays despite having only worked with him for a few weeks.
"First and foremost he is a really good person who wants to learn and get better," the former Reading manager confirmed.
"Sam is not one to sit back on his laurels - he has got potential, he is keen to learn and I'm sure he'll go on to fulfil it."
