Powell Earns IFL Honors
Barnstormers Quarterback Drew Powell Earns Offensive Player of the Week

DES MOINES - Iowa Barnstormers quarterback Drew Powell was named the Indoor Football League’s Offensive Player of the Week for Week 13, the League announced today.

Powell (6'3, 220, Livingstone College) earned IFL Offensive Player of the Week Honors after leading the Iowa Barnstormers to victory in a back and forth battle against the Arizona Rattlers. The Barnstormers edged out the Rattlers in an instant classic overtime matchup in week 13. Facing fourth and goal and down by seven in overtime, Powell plowed through the Rattlers defense to tie the game. The Barnstormers then went for two, with Powell finding receiver Brady Roland in the end zone giving Iowa the victory. These final key plays where just two of many by Powell throughout the game as he fueled Iowa’s offensive attack. Powell finished the game completing 19 of 21 passes for 191 yards and five touchdowns. He also led Iowa on the ground, rushing for 94 yards and four touchdowns.

This is the second time Powell has been named Offensive Player of the Week this season, earning honors in week 1.

The Indoor Football League awarded defensive back James Calhoun of the Cedar Rapids Titans with Defensive Player of the Week, while kicker Sawyer Petre of the Arizona Rattlers earned Special Teams Player of the Week.

Powell and the Barnstormers return home on Friday, May 25 to take on the Green Bay Blizzard. Kickoff is scheduled for 7:05pm. It’s Military Night! The Barnstormers will be sporting specialty Military Night jerseys that will be available for auction throughout the game.
