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

Topher Davis and Ben McGinn | Portland Stags

With a hard mark and the upline shut down by two Rainmakers defenders, Davis decides to throw a high-release backhand to a sliver of open space. McGinn reads his teammate’s risky throw and responds with a layout catch.

Innova Pulsar Throw of the Week

Billy Sickles | Philadelphia Spinners

Sickles throws a low-gliding bullet that harnesses the wind, knowing that Himalaya Mehta is one of the fastest players on the field.

Friction Gloves Catch of the Week

Nick Hirannet | Philadelphia Spinners

Catch your blocks, otherwise Nick Hirannet will chase the disc down, grab it, toe the line and reel it in for an incredible goal.

Defensive Play of the Week

Clay Dewey-Valentine | Seattle Rainmakers

In the third Callahan of the MLU season, Dewey-Valentine tips the disc into the end zone and catches it for a goal and the next pull. The full team celebration may have be more entertaining than the play itself.
