Players of the Week – Week 2
By Sean Dochney
Sean Collins – Rabid Squirrels
There were a lot of big games by Quarterbacks this week with 7 players throwing for over 300 yards, but not all were able to do this without throwing any interceptions. Collins had a huge game while leading the Rabid Squirrels to a 40-19 win over the Woodchucks this week. He went 24-33 for 334 yards with 6 touchdowns and 0 interceptions. There was no answer for him and his top receiver, Anthony Carlo.
Brandon Koppenjan – Average Joes
Brandon didn’t have as many attempts as most of the other QBs for the day, but he made the most of them with a lot of big plays in the 46-6 win over the Rattlers. He went 15-22 for 334 yards, 5 TDs, and 0 Interceptions. Terror Terron Maples was on the receiving end of a few of those big plays as he had 4 catches for 169 yards and 2 TDs.
Anthony Carlo – Rabid Squirrels
Carlo could not be stopped this past week. He hauled in 7 catches for 188 yards and 4 touchdowns. He averaged close to 27 yards per catch and had the most touchdowns this week. He was a big reason why the Rabid Squirrels were able to get a win this past week, in what I’ll call a “passionate” game against the Woodchucks.
Kyle Spatz – No Lackin’
No Lackin’ played 2 games this week and Spatz was able to have big games in both of them. No Lackin’ would win big on the day to the NJ Devils, and then fall just short of Strangers with Candy in game 2. Combined, Spatz would have 14 catches 252 yards and 4 TDs on the day. His 9 catch 146 yard performance against Strangers with Candy is what helps him get the runner up this week.
Steve Soletto – Shockers
A major reason why the Shockers were able to beat the Warewolves 42-37 is because the commissioner never felt comfortable in the pocket. Steve Soletto caused mayhem all day pressuring the QB on his way to 5 sacks, including a strip that he picked up himself to run for a touchdown.
Trevor Matthews – Average Joes
The Average Joes defense was well above average this week as they only let up 6 points to the Rattlers. Trevor Matthews would end up scoring more on defense then the Rattlers would on offense. Matthews had 2 of the Average Joes 5 interceptions on the day; he would return both of his picks for touchdowns.
