Players of the Week
In the past two weeks, Inderveer Malhi has been coming into his own as strong Linebacker.
He started the season on the line and at Tight end. It seems though that he has found his niche on the football field. In his first play on his own he figured to move with the motioned Tight end. He had various plays thrown towards him and run towards him and like a seasoned vet he has been cool under pressure. This past weekend against the Falcons he made a stupendous tackle stopping a Falcon Running back from making a Touch Down. The coaching staff sees big things for Inderveer the rest of the year.
Joey was voted week 4 player of the week by The Falcons Coaching Staff for his continuous hard work in practice and the 100% effort he gave for his 1st TD of the season. Joey is one of the smallest players on our roster but has a huge heart and has not given up on any play in practice or a game all season long. We are happy to have him on the team and look foward to help him enjoy the sport of football in anyway we can. Thank you Joey for being a great team player.
