US Coachways Offensive Play of the Week

Paparone has the field awareness to track it down for the layout score and lead.[bc width=”628px” height=”360″]—us-coachways-offensive-play-of-the-week[/bc] 

Innova Pulsar Throw of the Week

Ben McGinn | Portland StagsBaiting his mark to expect the dump pass, McGinn quickly switches his vision upfield for a sharp backhand to Raphy Hayes for the score. While the pass might have been intended for Bjorklund, it stayed in the air long enough for Hayes to easily track it down.[bc width=”628px” height=”360″]—innova-pulsar-throw-of-the-week[/bc] 

Friction Gloves Catch of the Week

Defensive Play of the Week

Delrico Johnson | D.C. CurrentLast week, Johnson earned himself the Catch of the Week, and earlier this season, he earned the Defensive Play of the Week. He does it again this week, but if there was an award for All-Around Play of the Week, this would be it. Johnson gets the bookends on an impressive season on both sides of the disc.[bc width=”628px” height=”360″]—defensive-play-of-the-week[/bc]
