IFL Announce Week 15 Players of the Week

The Indoor Football League (IFL) is proud to announce the Week 15 Players of the Week.
Offensive Players of the Week: Jordan Jolly (WR, Texas Revolution)
Facing elimination from playoff contention, the Texas Revolution stepped up, outlasting the Green Bay Blizzard by the score of 60-56. Wide Receiver Jordan Jolly (6'2, 190, Navarro College) put on an offensive show, hauling in 10 catches for 162 yards and 3 touchdowns. All three of his scores came on plays of 25+ yards. In his rookie season, Jolly has proven to be an explosive weapon. To date, Jolly ranks 11th in the league in receiving yards (471), 6th in yards per reception (13.1) minimum of 20 catches, and tied for 10th in touchdown receptions (10). Next up for the Revs is their toughest test to date, a home matchup against the Colorado Ice.
Defensive Player of the Week: Lionell Singleton (DB, Tri-Cities Fever)
The Fever played the role of spoiler Saturday night, defeating the Colorado Ice 41-37, and in the process, delivery a big blow to Colorado's quest for home field advantage in the playoffs. After beginning the season 1-6, for the first time since joining the IFL the Fever will not participate in the postseason this year. Since the slow start, the Fever are the hottest team in the IFL, winning 4 of 5 games. Defensive Back Lionell Singleton (5'9, 180, Florida International) sealed the win for the Fever this week, intercepting a desperation Hail Mary attempt from Ice QB Willie Copeland as time expired. For the game, Singleton tallied 3 tackles, 2 interceptions (increasing his league leading total to 9), and 1 pass break up. A First Team All-IFL selection and runner-up to Defensive Player of the Year in 2012, Lionell Singleton is well on his way to collecting additional hardware this season. The Fever are idle this week with a bye.
Special Teams Player of the Week: Parker Douglass (K, Sioux Falls Storm)
Parker Douglass (5'10, 180, South Dakota State) becomes the 7th Storm player to earn Player of the Week honors in 2013 (tied with the Cedar Rapids Titans for most POW awards). In the IFL Game of the Week, the Storm defeated the Titans 30-24. The win avenged the embarrassing 52-18 loss to the Titans in Week 13 and propels the Storm to sole possession of first place in the United Conference. Struggling on offense, only gaining 109 yards in the game, the Storm turned to Douglass to put points on the board. Douglass converted 3 of 5 field goal attempts (distances of 18, 25, and 44) and was 3-3 on PAT's, good for a total of 12 points. For the season, Douglass has converted 61% of his field goal attempts (1st in the IFL, minimum of 10 made attempts), and ranks 2nd in the league in scoring with 124 points. The Storm are idle this week with a bye as well.
