Hawaiian Islanders Defensive Specialist Joshua Robinson Named ADT National Defensive Player of the W

May 25, 2004 - arenafootball2 (af2) - Hawaiian Islanders News Release

CHICAGO – Hawaiian Islanders defensive specialist Joshua Robinson was today named ADT National Defensive Player of the Week by the arenafootball2 league today.

Memphis quarterback Brian Jones and Columbus wide receiver/defensive back Terence Samuel were also honored as the Baby Ruth Real Deal Offensive Player and U.S. Army Ironman Players of the Week, respectively, for Week 8 of the 2004 season.

Robinson (6-0, 195, Idaho State), in his second season, helped Hawaii top the Central Valley Coyotes 54-48 Saturday night to move to 5-2 on the season and in sole possession of first place. On the night Robinson totaled 12.5 tackles, which set a team record and tied him for an af2 season high with Florida's Quincy Sorrell who recorded 12.5 sacks in Week 6. Of Robinson's 12.5 tackles, 1.5 went for a loss. He also added a fumble recovery and an interception in the first half, which helped the Islanders get out to an early lead. His 11 solo tackles was also a Hawaiian Islanders record.

This is the first weekly honor for Robinson. He is the first Islanders player to win a weekly award since Eddie Klaneski won ADT Defensive Player of the Week award in Week 17 of last season.

The Hawaiian Islanders host the San Diego Riptide (2-5) in another key West Division game. The two teams met on May 8 with Hawaii winning in overtime 55-54 on Darnell Arceneaux’s two-point conversion.
