For the 2015 season, four players each week are awarded the US Coachways Offensive Play of the Week, the Innova Pulsar Throw of the Week, the Friction Gloves Catch of the Week and the Defensive Play of the Week.
US Coachways Offensive Play of the Week
Timmy Perston | Portland Stags
In the Stags’ 21-12 win over the Rainmakers on Saturday, Eli Friedman throws a perfect flick to the speedy Timmy Perston for his first goal of the season. Perston beats his man without a problem and catches up to the disc for an easy two-handed snag.
Innova Pulsar Throw of the Week
Henry Phan | Seattle Rainmakers
Look at the replay and you’ll see Phan throw this masterful outside-in forehand and then whip his hand backwards as if he’s a matador ripping away the red cape.
Friction Gloves Catch of the Week
Thomas Adams | San Francisco Dogfish
As the wind bounces the disc all over the sky above Yellowjacket Stadium, Adams covers over 30 yards for a one-handed layout.
Defensive Play of the Week
Ben Fleming | D.C. Current
The game is tied at 18 in double overtime. Jeff Graham, trapped in the end zone, launches a beautiful forehand for Christian Foster, five yards ahead of his defender. Knowing the game is on the line, Ben Fleming runs his best 40-yard dash to catch up to Foster and layout to save the point. The Current went on to win the game a few seconds later. For his efforts, Ben Fleming made SportsCenter’s Top 10 plays last night.
