The Jacksonville Sharks announce that Sharks defensive back Micheaux Robinson has been named AFL defensive player of the week for his outstanding performance in the Sharks 71-57 week two victory over the Georgia Force.

Robinson led the team with seven tackles, five pass break-ups and two interceptions in the victory. His two interceptions helped spark a Shark defense that totaled six stops against the Force. The 2010 ALL-AFL defensive second team member is leading the AFL with six pass break-ups and is tied for the league lead with two interceptions in 2011.

Robinson is the first Sharks AFL weekly award winner for the 2011 season. In 2010 Robinson was second in the AFL in pass break-ups (23), fourth in interceptions (8) and in the top 20 in tackles per game (6).
