Week 6 IFL Players of the Week Announced
The Indoor Football League (IFL) is proud to announce the Players of the Week for Week 6.

Offensive Players of the Week: Dennis Kennedy (RB, Colorado Ice)week6denniskennedy

If the Colorado Ice (2-2) hoped to earn the #1 seed in the Intense Conference standings, they could ill afford to lose Sunday’s game against the Nebraska Danger (4-2).  Answering the challenge, the Ice defended their home turf, edging the Danger 38-30.  Colorado’s offensive unit controlled the pace and tempo of the game, heavily featuring RB Dennis Kennedy in the running and short passing game.  During the contest, Kennedy grinded out 58 yards and a TD on 16 carries, adding 5 catches for 49 yards and 2 TDs.  Next up for the Ice is a road trip to Casper to take on the Wyoming Cavalry.  

Honorable Mention:
Chris Dixon (QB, Sioux Falls Storm)

Friday Night marked a number of first for the Wyoming Cavalry’s 2014 season.  The Cavalry (1-3) earned their first win of the season, a 28-24 victory over the Texas Revolution (2-2).  Additionally, DL Bryson Kelly becomes the first member of the Cavs to earn player of the week honors.  A strong defensive effort was key in the Cavs victory.  Wyoming held the Revolution to 123 total yards of offense, limiting Texas to 2 of 8 third down conversion attempts (25%), and 0 of 6 fourth down conversion attempts.  For the game, Kelly registered 7 tackles (5 for loss), including 4 sacks.  Kelly now leads the IFL with 5.5 sacks on the season.  The Cavs will look to ride the momentum of this win into next week when they host conference rivals, the Colorado Ice.

For the first time this season a pair of players share a player of the week honor.  In a dominating 86-42 performance over the Green Bay Blizzard (0-5), the Sioux Falls Storm (5-0) remained unbeaten and extended their winning streak (including postseason) to 11.  Thanks to RB/KR Tory Harrison and K Parker Douglass, 32 of the Storm’s points were scored by the special teams unit.  On 5 kickoff returns, Harrison covered 120 yards including 2 TDs (50 yards and 49 yards respectively).  Harrison also carried the load on offense, rushing for 69 yards and score and catching 5 passes for 49 yards.  All-League K Parker Douglass was perfect on the night.  Douglass converted 3 of 3 field goal attempts (long of 44 yards), and was 11 for 11 on PAT attempts (20 total points).  Douglass is now tied for the league lead in points scored with 60, while Harrison ranks 6th with 48.  The Storm are on a bye this week.
