The Manchester Wolves' 50-40 win over East Division rival Mahoning Valley Thunder meant earning the team's first road victory of the year after losing the first four, but for three Wolves their efforts last Friday in Ohio earned them even more recognition. With the victory; Wolves Head Coach earned his 50th all-time af2 win, DB Allistair Sebastien collected his 29th career interception to move him within one of the all-time leader, while WR Jarrail Jackson scored 18 points to move to 808 points all-time.

With the win Bennett moved to 5th all-time in the af2 league with his 50 wins while his adversary Rich Ingold, head coach of the Wilkes-Barre Scranton Pioneers (8-0), is one win ahead of him at 51. Both Bennett and Ingold are entering their fifth seasons as head coaches in the af2.

Sebastien (6'0, 200), who is playing his sixth season in the af2 and fifth with the Wolves, nabbed his 29th career interception in the win. The defensive specialist is now just one behind the af2's all-time leader Matt Forbes of the Louisville Fire. So far in his career Sebastien has amassed 362.5 total tackles to go along with his 29 interceptions in just 76 games played. The New York native currently holds the Wolves all-time records in tackles (329.0) and interceptions (25). With seven games into the 2007 season Sebastien leads the team in tackles (50.0) and interceptions (3).

"I'm not really thinking about it (the record) to tell you the truth," said Sebastien. "I'm more worried about our current season as we are lacking some consistency. I just hope I can make some big plays so that I can help our team make the playoffs."

Jackson (5'9, 190), who is entering his fifth season in the af2 and first with the Wolves, surpassed the 800 all-time point total in the af2 with his three touchdown performance last Friday. The former Oklahoma Sooner currently has 808 points scored which ranks him third all-time behind Kevin Williams (Arkansas Twisters) and Magic Benton (Florida Firecats) respectively.
