Awards Roundup: Gilbert and Reaser win POTW
The Alliance announced their players of the week for Week 2, and the Apollos came up big.
For the second week in a row, a pick six earned an Apollos defensive player league Defensive Player of the Week honors. This time it’s CB Keith Reaser, who added 3 pass defenses and 2 tackles to his game-winning interception. In what should come as no surprise, QB Garrett Gilbert won Offensive Player of the Week honors with his 2 touchdown, 393 yard passing performance. Gilbert now leads the league with 620 yards passing over two games.
In other news, several Apollos were named to this week’s Pro Football Focus AAF Team of the Week. In addition to Gilbert, WR Charles Johnson and C Jordan McCray were named to the offense, while Reaser was the lone defensive representative. For Reaser, it is his second week in a row on the PFF Team of the Week.
