March 4, 2019 - Alliance of American Football (AAF) - San Antonio Commanders

San Antonio Commanders running back Kenneth Farrow II, Memphis Express linebacker Drew Jackson and Memphis Express kicker Austin MacGinnis were named Alliance of American Football Offensive Player, Defensive Player and Unsung Hero of the Week, respectively, for week four of the AAF season.

Farrow finished Sunday's game with 30 carries for an Alliance record 142 yards in San Antonio's 12-11 victory over the previously-undefeated Birmingham Iron. His longest run of the game was for 26 yards.

Farrow, 25, played college football at Houston and spent time with the San Diego Chargers during the 2016 season.

His 26-yard run in the third quarter against the Birmingham Iron proved to be the big play in San Antonio's touchdown drive:

Drew Jackson compiled 14 total tackles, including four tackles for a loss, four passes defended, one sack and one interception in the Memphis Express' 26-23 victory over the San Diego Fleet.

Jackson played college football at Western Kentucky.

Jackson's key interception in the third quarter helped put Memphis in position for an important touchdown and the team's first victory:

MacGinnis, who was a financial advisor two weeks ago, signed this week when the Express released kicker Josh Jasper. He finished four-of-four on field goal attempts of 46, 40, 35 and 45 yards in the Memphis victory.

MacGinnis, 23 played college football at Kentucky and broke the school record for most field goals.

His game winning 45-yard field goal with 2:42 left in the fourth provided the winning points in the Memphis comeback against San Diego:
