MESA, Ariz. – After a solid defensive performance against the Spokane Shock, DB MARQUIS FLOYD has garnered the Riddell Defensive Player of the Week award.
The defensive back snared two of the four interceptions that Spokane’s quarterback Erik Meyer threw in the Rattlers’ 68-46 victory over the Shock. Both interceptions led to touchdowns by Arizona’s offense, allowing the Rattlers to keep the lead throughout the game.
Floyd now ranks fifth in the League in interceptions with nine this season. The Georgia native finished the night with two pass breakups and eight tackles to go along with his two picks.
