Players of the Week – Week 1 – Summer 2016
By Sean Dochney
Kyle Watson – The Grizzlies
Kyle set quite the impression in his JSGFFL debut for the Grizzlies. He led the Grizzlies to a 46-30 victory over an improved Rattlers squad, and flirted with a perfect QB rating for the day, but would fall just shy at 154.9. Watson would go 25-34 (73.5%) for 424 yards, 5 touchdowns and no interceptions. The Grizzlies will take on a tougher opponent next week in the Grizzlies where Watson will look to continue his hot start.
John “The Zit” Zitani – Woodchucks
The Zit popped off again this week as the Woodchucks defeated French Toast Mafia 43-27. The Zit lost one of his top receivers in the offseason in Zach Emmitt, but it didn’t seem to matter as he was still able to put up a big game. Zitani went 20-32 for 331 yards, 6 touchdowns and 1 interception thrown. The Zit is a longtime fan favorite and poster boy of the JSGFFL even though he plays for the “hard to root for” Woodchucks.
Shane Capone – Warewolves
Capone was a huge component in the Warewolves 28-28 tie against the defending champion Shockers. The Warewolves were missing a few of their top receivers this week, but the elusive Capone came up big with 8 catches for 130 yards and 3 TDs on a league high 17 targets. Shane will look to keep things going as the Warewolves have another tough matchup next week against the Woodchucks
Corey Feldman – Rabid Squirrels
The Goonie made huge plays for the Rabid Squirrels in their 30-6 victory over the Assassins. Feldman had 4 receptions for 128 yards and 3 touchdowns on the day, and would add an interception on defense. The Rabid Squirrels are coming off a tough Spring season that saw them miss the playoffs after starting 4-0. The Rabid Squirrels match up against the Grizzlies next week as both teams will look to extend their records to 2-0.
Michael Medina – Grizzlies
Medina had an interception and scored the only defensive touchdown of the week and it came at a crucial time against the Rattlers as the Grizzlies won 46-30. The Grizzlies will need another big day from Medina and their defense as they play the Rabid Squirrels next week.
Corey not only receives runner up for WR, but also for defense this week as he had an interception and a sack on defense. The Rabid Squirrels held the Assassins to a league low 6 points and 154 yards of offense. Mike Lawrence added another interception, while John Petrowski had a sack as well. The Squirrels will need another big game next week as they face off against the Grizzlies.
