League Honors Another Shark Player

For the second consecutive week - and fourth time this season - the Jacksonville Sharks (11-4) have been honored with a league award. Defensive back Micheaux Robinson was honored with Nifty Playmaker of the Week after his stellar performance against the Bossier-Shreveport Battle Wings.

Robinson (5-9, 175, Otterbein) was outstanding in his team’s critical victory. Robinson took Jacksonville one step closer to winning the South Division with a road win at Bossier-Shreveport. Robinson had seven pass breakups and a season-high 9.5 tackles.

“I am blessed an humbled to have been recognized by people around the league,” commented Robinson. “I am my own worst critique and didn’t think I played all that well. There are lots of guys that make big plays each week on our team and around the league. For me to have been given this honor makes me extremely happy and proud of my team around me that helped me make some plays.”

Jacksonville had several candidates for weekly honors this week. Robinson was also a finalist for Riddell Defensive Player of the Week while Bernard Morris and Sale’ Key were finalists for Russell Athletic Offensive Player of the Week and JLS Ironman of the Week, respectively.

The Jacksonville Sharks are members of the Arena Football League (AFL).  All home games will be played at Sea Best Field at the Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena.  The Sharks return to Sea Best Field Friday, July 30 for the conclusion of the regular season against the Spokane Shock.
