Everett Named National Guard MVP of the Week
MILWAUKEE (May 3, 2012) - The Arena Football League announced today that Milwaukee Mustangs wide receiver/linebacker Marcus Everett has been selected as the National Guard MVP of the Week for Week 8 of the 2012 season.
Marcus Everett apparently isn't content watching football from the sidelines. Being on the football field is more to his liking. The Mustangs' two-way player got the job done on both the offensive and defensive sides of the ball when Milwaukee hosted the Utah Blaze last Saturday.
"It is an honor to be named the National Guard MVP of Week 8. A lot of hard work and dedication has been put into this season," said Everett. "Our team goals are to make the playoffs and to put ourselves in the best position to win a championship. We have a special group of guys and I will continue to do whatever it takes to help my team win and achieve our goals."
Everett ran away with the fan poll garnering 80 percent of the fan votes, topping Tampa Bay Storm receiver Chandler Williams and Cleveland Gladiators receiver Dominick Goodman for the honor.
Against Utah, Everett played the entire game at the "Jack" linebacker spot. Despite that, Everett also excelled at the wide receiver position on the Mustangs' offense. The UCLA product hauled in five catches for 67 yards. Everett led Milwaukee with four touchdown catches.
In six games at the wide receiver slot, Everett has caught 11 passes for 147 yards and five scores. He's also rushed for a touchdown. Everett leads the defense with three interceptions, two of which have been returned for touchdowns.
The 2012 Milwaukee Mustangs are thrilled to honor and represent the Arena Football League as they celebrate their silver 25thanniversary this season. The rich heritage of the Milwaukee Mustangs continues the tradition of hard-hitting arena football action in Milwaukee. Tickets and Sponsorships are on sale now!
