The Alabama Hammers (1-2), riding high from the team’s 63-60 win on the road over the Columbus Lions, will be led by the Professional Indoor Football League’s offensive and defensive players of the week when they play the Richmond Raiders Saturday evening at the Coliseum. Richmond, 3 and 1 and in second place in the PIFL, is coming off a confidence-building 80 to 29 win on the road over Knoxville. The matchup should result in high scoring offensive entertainment that keeps fans glued to their seats.
Richmond, undefeated at home, will be led by Quarterback Antwon Young who completed 21 of 33 passing attempts for 276 yards, eight touchdowns and zero interceptions in Knoxville. He connected with wide receiver Andrew Winston for ten receptions totaling 125 yards and five touchdowns in that game.
Alabama will be led by Players of the Week, wide receiver Mico McSwain and linebacker Al Donaldson. McSwain caught eight passes for 135-yards and four touchdowns against Columbus, including the game winning 5-yard touchdown reception from quarterback Arvell Nelson with 26-seconds left in the game. Donaldson, the PIFL leader in tackles, finished with six tackles and intercepted two passes on the night as the defense was able to keep the Lions out of the end zone in the final seconds of a very close game.
