DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Jourdan Wickliffe (DB, Iowa Barnstormers)

The IFL's defending champion Iowa Barnstormers moved to 2-0 on the season in Week 3 after dominating the Green Bay Blizzard 41-3. The three points allowed by Iowa is the lowest in the IFL since 2015 (Cedar Rapids, 0). Key to the Barnstormers victory was DB Jourdan Wickliffe. In the waning seconds of the game the 2018 Second Team All-IFL DB intercepted a Blizzard pass at the goal line and returned it 49 yards for a touchdown. Wickliffe's interception return for a TD was the first in the IFL this season. Wickliffe also forced two fumbles and led the team with nine tackles. The Iowa Barnstormers have a bye in Week 4 before traveling to face the Nebraska Danger in Week 5.
