Khaliff Mitchell, Sioux Falls Storm, Defensive Player of the Week

DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Khaliff Mitchell (DL, Sioux Falls Storm)

The Sioux Falls Storm continue to win games by the time tested approach of running the football and playing great defense. The Storm rushed for five touchdowns and only allowed 114 yards in the team's 44-24 victory over the Green Bay Blizzard. DL Khaliff Mitchell embodied the team's strong nosed defensive approach in Week 13. Mitchell was in the Blizzard's backfield all night long as he finished his night with two sacks, three tackles for loss, five total tackles one forced fumble, and one pass breakup. Mitchell's forced fumble gave the Storm a short field to capitalize on that gave the Storm a two score lead. Mitchell will help anchor the IFL's top ranked defense as the team takes on the Cedar Rapids Titans in Week 14.
