Week 2 IFL Players of the Week Announced

The Indoor Football League (IFL) is proud to announce the Week 2 Players of the Week. In the only regular season game on the schedule in Week 2, the Cedar Rapids Titans improved their record to 2-0 with a hard fought 58-52 victory over the Chicago Slaughter, who fell to 0-2.
Offensive Player of the Week: Bryan Pray (WR, Cedar Rapids Titans)
If Bryan Pray had his way, Cedar Rapids would play Chicago every week. Pray (5'7, 170, Pittsburg State) had another monster game against the Slaughter, hauling in 4 passes for 71 yards and 3 touchdowns. One of the touchdowns came on a 40 yard bomb from QB Colton Hansen in the 3rd quarter. After the Titans jumped out to an early lead, the Slaughter slowly began to fight their way back into the game. However, all three of Pray's touchdowns came in the 2nd half and helped solidify the win for the Titans. Currently, Pray leads the league with 5 receiving touchdowns on the season.
Defensive Player of the Week: Trevor Glomski (LB, Cedar Rapids Titans)
After giving up a franchise high 191 yards rushing to the Slaughter in Week 1 the Titans knew they had to make some adjustments in the Week 2 rematch. Trevor Glomski (6'1, 240, Concordia) stepped up in a big way, leading the charge to allow only 53 rushing yards. Glomski recorded 13 tackles (6 solo, 7 assisted) including 2.5 for loss. In addition, the Titans defense did not allow the Slaughter to convert a 3rd conversion during the entire game (0-9). Cedar Rapids will need another strong effort from Glomski this week if they hope to slow down the high powered offense of the Texas Revolution. The Revolution lit up the score board for a total of 103 points in their preseason opener last week.
Special Teams Player of the Week: Kyle Jenkins (DL, Chicago Slaughter)
Jenkins (6'4, 250, Northern Illinois) and the rest of the Chicago's Special Teams unit did all they could to keep the Slaughter in the game on Sunday. Jenkins blocked two Radamez Rubio field goal attempts, one of which occurred during the 4th quarter and was returned by teammate Lenny Radtke for a touchdown. Jenkins also turned in an inspired defensive performance, accounting for 6 tackles (3 solo, 3 assisted) 3.5 for loss, and 2.5 sacks. Despite the early season struggles, the Slaughter will look to get on track Saturday night when they host their bitter rivals the Green Bay Blizzard.
