Players of the Week – Week 5
By Sean Dochney
Joe Giuffre – Shockers
The Gufflslinger was at the top of his game as the Shockers turned the Woodchucks into whiny little children in the 40-26 victory in Week 5. The Woodchucks did not have an answer for Giuffre as he would complete 26 of his 45 passes for 365 yards and 6 touchdowns. He did all this without throwing an interception. Devon Snead and Charlie Barbiere would both have over 100 yards receiving for the Shockers on the day. Giuffre now has the most touchdown passes in the league with 26, and the second most yards with 1,642. The Shockers will take on the Rabid Squirrels in Week 6. This is a big game for the Squirrels as they currently sit in the 4th and final playoff spot, with the Clam Slammers are right on their heels.
Brian Lee – Clam Slammers
The Clam Slammers took down the Money Team in Week 4 to a score of 41-18. Brian was on the money in this game completing 22 of 28 passes for 297 yards, 5 touchdowns, and 1 interception. Lee has missed a few games this season, but he has put up respectable numbers in the games he has been able to make. Lee has completed 69% of his passes for 860 yards, 13 touchdowns, and 4 interceptions. The Clam Slammers find themselves on the outside looking in of the 4th and final playoff spot. They may be in luck this upcoming week as the Rabid Squirrels will be taking on the dominant Shockers in Week 6. For that to matter, the Slammers will have to take down the undefeated Warewolves in Week 6, which will be no easy task.
Chris McIntosh – Warewolves
No Shane Capone, no problem for the Wolves. Warewolves were still able to handle Strangers with Candy with relative ease as they won 34-12. McIntosh stepped up big with the Warewolves missing the top receiver in the league. McIntosh would have 5 catches for 130 yards and 3 touchdowns. Chris is having himself a solid season as he now how 11 catches for 256 yards and 5 touchdowns. McIntosh will look to stay hot in Week 6 as the Warewolves will be taking on the Clam Slammers
Charlie Barbiere – Shockers
Barbiere had himself a big game in the clubbing of the Woodchucks in Week 5. Charlie would catch 8 passes for 110 yards and 2 touchdowns. This game, plus the absence of Shane Capone, puts Barbiere as the top-rated receiver according to the JSGFFL leaderboard. Charlie, now has 27 catches for 469 yards and 9 touchdowns on the season. The Shockers have answered nicely over the past 2 weeks in response to their loss to the Warewolves back in Week 3. They will look to stay hot as they take on the Rabid Squirrels in Week 6.
Bill Budd – Rabid Squirrels
Budd Light has been a menace on defense for the Squirrels all season long, and continued his menacing ways in Week 5. Budd would add to his lead for most interceptions in the league with another in the Week 5 win against the Red Jaguars, and he would return this one for his first defensive touchdown on the season. He also added a sack to his stat line in this game. On the season, Budd has 5 interceptions and 3 sacks. He will need to come up big in Week 6, as the Squirrels will take on the always tough Shockers.
Chris McIntosh – Warewolves
McIntosh was not just dominant on defense in the victory against Strangers with Candy, he also went off on the defensive side of the ball. Chris would have 2 interceptions in the contest, which now gives him 3 on the season, which is good to be tied for second in the league. Warewolves are the last undefeated team left and will look to keep it that way in Week 6 as they take on the Clam Slammers.
