The Indoor Football League (IFL) is proud to announce the Vidswap.com Players of the Week for Week 7 of the 2019 IFL season.

Week 7 Offensive Player of the Week - Calen Campbell

OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Calen Campbell (RB, Sioux Falls Storm)

The Sioux Falls Storm moved past the Bismarck Bucks 64-31 in Week 7 and used a strong rushing attack to lead the way. RB Calen Campbell became the first running back to top 100 yards in a game this season as he gashed the Bucks defense and scored four touchdowns. Campbell had rushing scores of 3,3, 33 and 10 yards. The former Lindenwood University RB finished his night rushing 16 times for 110 yards and the four touchdowns. He also added 27 kick return yards. Campbell’s 110 rushing yards are the most by any player in an IFL game this season. Campbell and the Sioux Falls Storm have a bye week in Week 8 before returning to host the Iowa Barnstormers on April 20.


Honorable Mention:  Jamal Miles (WR, Arizona Rattlers) Lenorris Footman (QB, Green Bay Blizzard),  Keshaun Taylor (WR, Green Bay Blizzard), Jamal Tyler (RB, Iowa Barnstormers) Eric Thomas (WR, Nebraska Danger)


DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK:  Brandon Roe (DB, Nebraska Danger)

The Nebraska Danger evened their record on the season at 3-3 after upsetting the Tucson Sugar Skulls 53-47 in Week 7. The Danger’s opportunistic defense came up big and DB Brandon Roe’s three interceptions could not have come at better times. Roe twice intercepted the Sugar Skulls in the endzone, ending potential scoring drives. He then provided the proverbial nail in the coffin as he intercepted Sugar Skulls QB Jake Medlock with less than a minute remaining, sealing the Danger’s victory. Roe’s three interceptions are the most in an IFL game this season. He also finished the game with three tackles. The Danger have now won back- to- back games and will travel to face the Green Bay Blizzard in Week 8.
