DB Rocky Hayes Earns Week 8 Defensive Player of the Week

DES MOINES – Iowa Barnstormers defensive back Rocky Hayes was named the Indoor Football League’s Defensive Player of the Week for Week 8, the League announced today.

Hayes (6’0, 190, Arkansas State) earned IFL Defensive Player of the Week Honors after sealing the Iowa Barnstormers victory over the Nebraska Danger with an interception. After faltering against the Danger in Week 6, the Barnstormers took vengeance in Week 8 with a 41-25 victory over the Danger. The league’s second ranked defense held the Danger to the team’s lowest point total of the season. DB Rocky Hayes helped ensure the Barnstormers’ defensive mastery with his game-sealing interception of Danger QB Jesse Scroggins III. In addition, Hayes also recovered a fumble in the third quarter which would eventually lead to a Barnstormers touchdown. Hayes finished the game with six tackles, one interception, and one fumble recovery.
