Robert Metz, Green Bay Blizzard, Defensive Player of the Week

DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Robert Metz (LB, Green Bay Blizzard)

The Green Bay Blizzard fell 41-14 to the Iowa Barnstormers and now fall to a disappointing  2-9 on the season. A bright point on the defense, however, has been the play of LB Robert Metz. Metz (6'4, Dixie State University) flew around the field all night long against the Barnstormers, accounting for 12 total tackles and a tackle for loss. The Blizzard linebacker acted as a roadblock to Iowa's rushing attack throughout the game as he held the Barnstormers to four or less yards on eight of his tackles. Accustomed to stopping an opposing team's offense, Metz is currently tied for second in the IFL in sacks with 4.5. The Green Bay Blizzard host the Sioux Falls Storm in Week 15.
