 RUSSELL ATHLETIC OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK
 
 Banks (6-0, 212, Iowa) completed 24-of-37 passes for 383 yards and a franchise
 record 10 touchdowns in Iowa's 76-69 victory over San Jose in Week 4. Banks
 played a role in every Iowa score on the night, rushing four times for 17
 yards, including a seven-yard touchdown run with 50 seconds left in the game.
 
 RIDDELL DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK

 in the contest. He came away with a tackle for loss and one pass breakup as
 well.
 
 JLS IRONMAN OF THE WEEK
 
 Moye-Moore (6-2, 250, Maryland) found the end zone twice - and on both sides
 of the ball - in the first quarter of Orlando's 47-48 loss to Arizona in Week
 2. He scored the game's first points with a one-yard touchdown run. He made
 his presence felt on the defensive side of the ball later in the first period
 with a 21-yard interception return for a score. It was his first of two
 interceptions on the night.
 
 CUTTERS CATCH OF THE WEEK
 
 Key (6-5, 215, Idaho State) flipped over the boards to make a one-handed
 touchdown catch with 4:19 to play in the first quarter of Jacksonville's 54-30

 touchdowns on the night.
 
 NIFTY PLAYMAKER OF THE GAME
 
 Bergeron (6-2, 195, Middle Tennessee State) tied a Cleveland franchise-record

 receptions for 187 yards in the contest and finished the game with 201 all-
 purpose yards.
 
 SPALDING HIGHLIGHT OF THE GAME
 
 The Arizona Rattlers put together an incredible comeback in the last 27
 seconds of the team's 48-47 victory over Orlando in Week 4. It began when DB
 Virgil Gray intercepted a tipped pass on Arizona's five-yard line. The next
 play, QB Nick Davila connected with WR/LB Jason Geathers for a 31-yard gain.
 Two plays later, Davila would find Geathers again, this time for a touchdown.
 Still down one point, Davila found WR Trandon Harvey on the two-point
 conversion in the back of the end zone with eight seconds to play, giving the
 Rattlers a 48-47 victory.
