June 3, 2009 - Indoor Football League (IFL) News Release
Richmond, VA: Two thirds of the season is over, and each team is set to make their final push for the playoffs. The level of play has been intense, and looks to only get more exciting in the coming games. Mathematically, only three teams have officially clinched berths into the postseason, and the standout performers this week propelled their teams closer to the IFL's "Second Season". Fans can visit GoIFL.com to see the video highlights that made these young men the VidSwap.com Players of the Week.
WEEK TWELVE OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK -QB PERRY PATTERSON/ROCHESTER RAIDERS
The Rochester offense wants the rest of the IFL to know that it isn't just the #1 ranked scoring defense that makes this team a threat. The offensive unit has hit their stride ever since Perry Patterson has taken over the helm at Quarterback. Last week against Saginaw, the Raider signal caller put on an aerial display throwing for five touchdowns and 285 yards. The long bomb seemed to be the play of choice as Patterson threw for scores of 24, 34, 35, 36 and 45 yards and helped the Raiders even their record at 4-4 and one step closer to clinching the final playoff sot in the Atlantic Division.
WEEK TWELVE DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK -LB LAMONT REID/ WICHITA WILD
Players sometimes have good games, and maybe even great games. But rarely do players have DOMINATE games. Against Sioux City last week, Lamont Reid had a dominate performance. The linebacker was involved in virtually every play on defense, and becoming a nightmare for the Bandits running backs and receivers. Reid set a franchise single-game record for tackles with 13, 12 of them solo. The total was also good for the second most by an IFL defender in a single game this season. In addition, he recorded one tackle for a loss, one forced fumble, and recovered an onsides kick to cap off the night.
WEEK TWELVE SPECIAL TEAMS PLAYER OF THE WEEK-K DYLAN POHLMAN/WICHITA WILD
For the second week in a row, a member of the Wild receives the Special Teams Player of the Week. In last week's game against Sioux City, the leg of Dylan Pohlman was the difference in Wichita's ten point victory. The Kicker was a perfect 4 for 4 on extra point's, hit on 3 of 4 field goal attempts, and had two Rouges on kickoffs. In total, he was responsible for 15 of the 39 Wild points.
The season resumes June 5, with a Friday night double dip as Sioux City heads to Omaha and Maryland traveling to Saginaw. Kickoff for both is scheduled for 7:05 PM local time. Follow all the action at www.goifl.com and on the B2 broadcasts www.b2livetv.com of each game all season long.
