Nighthawks' Lloyd Earns IFL Honors

Wichita Falls Nighthawks defensive lineman Terrance Lloyd was named the Indoor Football League's Defensive Player of the Week on Wednesday.

Lloyd had four sacks in Saturday's 58-27 win over the Bemidji (MN) Axemen, the first IFL victory for the Nighthawks. He recorded six total tackles and also forced a fumble in the Nighthawks' big second-half push that put the game away.

The Nighthawks (1-4) will have a bye this weekend, then return to the scene of their season-opener to start a home-and-home series with the Colorado Ice (2-2). 

The team also made a few roster moves Wednesday, releasing LB Bruni Foster and DL Lenard Williams and activating DB Deante Purvis from injured reserve.
