Orlando Apollos wide receiver Charles Johnson, Salt Lake Stallions defensive end and Karter Schult and Orlando Apollos cornerback Keith Reaser were named OurSports Central Offensive Player, Defensive Player and Unsung Hero of the Week, respectively, for week two of the AAF season.

Charles Johnson finished Sunday's game with seven receptions for a whopping 192 yards and one touchdown in the Orlando Apollos thrilling 37-29 victory over the San Antonio Commanders. Johnson's longest catch went for 54 yards.

The 29-year old wide receiver compiled 60 receptions for 834 yards and two touchdowns in the three seasons he played with the Minnesota Vikings from 2014-2016.

Johnson's 21-yard touchdown reception from quarterback Garrett Gilbert gave Orlando a second quarter lead:

Karter Schult had six tackles, two sacks, three tackles for loss, four quarterback hits, a pass deflection and a forced fumble in the Salt Lake Stallions 12-9 loss to the Birmingham Iron. Schult also stopped a fake punt run attempt for a first down by the Birmingham Iron.

The 25-year old defensive end played college football at Northern Iowa. In 2018 he played in The Spring League before being signed by the NFL Carolina Panthers.

Here is the second sack Karter Schult had in the first quarter against the Birmingham Iron.

Keith Reaser earned Unsung Hero honors with his game-winning, 39-yard interception return for a touchdown against San Antonio Commanders quarterback Logan Woodside in the Apollos 37-29 victory.

The 27-year old cornerback previously played for both the San Francisco 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs.

His interceptions return proved to be the biggest defensive play in a game full of offense
