Michigan Panthers running back Matthew Colburn II also shone with 24 carries for 93 yards and two touchdowns in the Panthers' 24-18 decision over the Memphis Showboats.

Defensively, Cole finished with eight total tackles, one interception, one pass breakup and one forced fumble in the Battlehawks' 26-21 playoff clincher over the D.C. Defenders. Cole played last season with the XFL's Seattle Sea Dragons before being selected by St. Louis in the UFL Dispersal Draft.

Cole's teammate, linebacker Wille Harvey, earned honorable mention with six total tackles, one sack and two pass breakups.

Gallman scored the game-winning, one-yard touchdown with two minutes remaining in the Battlehawks win. He had two rushing touchdowns as well as a receiving touchdown for 38 yards.
