Two Nighthawks Earn IFL Weekly Honors

Two Wichita Falls Nighthawks players earned weekly honors from the Indoor Football League on Wednesday.

Defensive back James Ackel continued to rake in weekly honors, earning defensive honorable mention for the third week in a row, and fourth time this season. This week he had seven total tackles, with one for loss, and a key fumble recovery in the third quarter with the Nighthawks leading by one.

Also this week, wide receiver Jefferson "J.J." Hayes earned offensive honorable mention after catching eight passes for 102 yards and a touchdown in the Nighthawks' payback win at Cedar Rapids.

They'll be on the road again this week, starting a home-and-home series with the Green Bay Blizzard.
