Offensive Player of the Week
Jaye Eniola, Running Back, Tallahassee Pride: 29 carries, 316 yards, 4 TDs, 10.8 YPC
The Tallahassee Pride had an all-around great performance this week against the New Orleans Pharaohs, led by Pride running back Jaye Eniola. Eniola had an overall career game, with career highs in carries (29), yards (316), rushing touchdowns (4), and yards per carry (10.8). Eniola now leads the league in rushing yards (844) and yards per carry (8.5).
Honorable Mention: E.T. King, Quarterback, Chicago Wildcats, 28/34, 324 yards, 4 TDs, 0 INTs, 82.35 completion percentage, 145.6 QBR
The Chicago Wildcats got their first win this season, beating the London Knights 44-31. The win was in large part due to Wildcats quarterback E.T. King having a near-perfect day. The former MVP played like one with only six incompletions all game. King may have finally hit his stride again after a rough season 10.
Defensive Player of the Week
Alex Dominguez, Defensive Tackle, Alaska Storm, 5 sacks, 7 total tackles
Another week, another great performance from Alaska Storm defensive tackle Alex Dominguez. In a tight game against the Las Vegas Fury, Dominguez showed out, recording five sacks, including one with 10 seconds on the clock that would all but seal a win for the Storm, continuing their perfect season thus far.
Honorable Mention: Ryan Michaels, Cornerback, Houston Hyenas, 2 INTs, 1 TD, 4 tackles
Houston Hyenas cornerback Ryan Michaels showed out this week. With an interception returned for a touchdown in the second quarter, Michaels put the Hyenas up by three scores, 17-0. Michaels would grab another interception midway through the third quarter to stop a then-surging Desperados offense that had scored on each of their last three offensive drives. This is Michaels’ first game with multiple interceptions and since week two has had at least one interception every game.
