DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Bakari Triggs (DB, Green Bay Blizzard)
The Green Bay Blizzard earned their first road victory of the season in Week 5 as the team inched by the San Diego Strike Force 53-45. Just as in their previous victory, the Blizzard's defense came to the aid when needed most. Late in the first half, down 28-27, Blizzard DB Joe Powell intercepted a pass and returned it for a touchdown. The very next Strike Force offensive play, DB Bakari Triggs intercepted another pass and returned it for a touchdown as well. Triggs' interception for a touchdown gave the Blizzard a 13 point lead and a lead the team would never relinquish. Triggs would later add another interception on the Strike Force's first possession of the second half. He finished the game with two tackles. The Blizzard travel and face the Quad City Steamwheelers in Week 6.
