SPECIAL TEAMS PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Jarrod Harrington (KR, Arizona Rattlers)

The Arizona Rattlers narrowly escaped in-state rival Tucson Sugar Skulls in a thrilling 50-49 overtime matchup in Week 16. After a first half dominated by the Sugar Skulls, WR/ KR Jarrod Harrington helped provide a spark late that fueled the Rattlers second half comeback. With less than a minute remaining in the second quarter, Harrington took a kickoff and burst through the Sugar Skulls' special teams' unit for a quick 50 yard return touchdown. That touchdown helped fuel the Rattlers as the team would score 14 more unanswered points in the third quarter to even the game. Harrington finished the game with five kickoff returns for 109 yards and a touchdown. He also added a seven yard rushing touchdown. The Arizona Rattlers host the San Diego Strike Force in Week 17.
