Week 14 IFL Players of the Week Announced

The Indoor Football League announced the Week 14 Players of the Week.
Offensive Players of the Week: Kayne Farquharson (WR, Nebraska Danger)
Kayne Farquharson (6’2, 190, Miami) becomes the 3rd Wide Receiver to earn Offensive Player of the Week in 2013 (Bryan Pray Week 2, Ryan Balentine Week 10).  In an 82-53 victory over the Wyoming Cavalry, the Danger receiver turned in the most impressive performance for a player at his position this season.  Farquharson hauled in 8 catches for 186 yards and 3 touchdowns.  For the season, he ranks at or near the top in nearly every receiving category; 2nd in receptions (61), 1st in receiving yards (866), and 3rd in receiving touchdowns (17).  A 2nd Team All-IFL selection in 2012, Farquharson is well on his way to collecting a 1st Team nod this year.
Defensive Player of the Week: Gabe Knapton (DL, Colorado Ice)
The Colorado Ice outlasted the Tri-Cities Fever 39-35 for an important Intense Conference victory.  Trailing 23-9 midway through the 3rd quarter, the Ice defense stiffened up in the nick of time to allow the offensive unit the opportunity to win the game.  DL Gabe Knapton (6’3, 260, Wyoming) led the defensive effort, tallying 12 tackles (3 for loss), and 2.5 sacks.  For the season, Knapton now leads all Defensive Linemen with 59 tackles, and is tied for 5th with 5.5 sacks.  The Ice and Fever will be back at it again this weekend in Kennewick, WA for the 3rd and final matchup between the teams in 2013.
Special Teams Player of the Week:  B.J. Hill (KR, Green Bay Blizzard)
For the second consecutive week, and third time this season, a member of the Green Bay Blizzard player has been named Special Teams Player of the Week.  Despite a 54-37 loss at the hands of the Cedar Rapids Titans, Kick Returner B.J. Hill turned in another outstanding performance for the Blizzard.  Hill, the most prolific returner in the IFL history, returned a kickoff 56 yards in the 3rd quarter for a score, upping his career kickoff return touchdown record to 13.  A jack of all trades, not only did Hill registered 5 returns for 153 yards, he contributed on offense and defense as well, tallying 5 catches for 41 yards and 2 tackles.  He leads the IFL in All-Purpose yards with 1241.  This weekend, Hill and the Blizzard head to Texas for a must win game against the Revolution.
