DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Allen Chapman (DB, Arizona Rattlers)

In a battle of defenses, the Arizona Rattlers held on to defeat the Green Bay Blizzard 37-31 in Week 4.  In a close game, Rattlers DB Allen Chapman (5'11, Kansas State Univ.) was the bane of the Blizzard's hopes all night long. Late in the game and down by six points, Green Bay QB Christian Lemay looked to the end zone for the potential game-winning touchdown but Chapman intercepted the pass, ending Green Bay's hopes for the upset. Chapman also ended a Green Bay scoring drive earlier in the game as he intercepted as pass at his own four yard line and returned it 22 yards. Chapman finished the night with two interceptions and now has 10 for his IFL career. Chapman and the Rattlers host the undefeated Nebraska Danger in Week 5.
