Salt Lake Screaming Eagles defensive back James Calhoun has been named the Indoor Football League's Defensive Player of the Week for week 11, the IFL announced today.
Calhoun was a one-man wrecking crew, wreaking havoc on the Spokane Empire offense last week. The Empire escaped with a 31-29 last-minute win, but Calhoun made his mark. He intercepted three passes, returning one for a touchdown, recorded 5.5 tackles and a pass break up. In the kickoff return game, he had two return s for an average of 18.5 yards.
On the season, Calhoun is the co-leader in interceptions with four and has 12.5 tackles. He has returned he has a 21.6-yard kickoff return average with one returned for a touchdown (co-incidentally, also against the Empire). He also has shown up on offense, recording six catches for 51 yards.
Calhoun is the second Screaming Eagle to win such an honor this season; quarterback Verlon Reed was named Offensive Player of the Week for week 2 after the Screaming Eagles' recorded their first ever win.
