For the second week in a row, Wranglers Running Back Ramonce Taylor has been named one of the IFL's Players of the Week.
Last week Taylor took home the league's Special Teams Award following his 208 return yard performance, taking one of his returns back for a 50-yard touchdown.
This past week, while the Wranglers were on the road in Nebraska, Taylor not only returned another kickoff for a touchdown (for the third week in a row), but he paced the team with seven receptions for 116 yards and four touchdowns.
Taylor's 251 All-Purpose yards continued to cement him as one of the league's premier return men, and one of its up and coming stars. Taylor's 116 yards receiving as well as his four touchdowns were the highest recorded by a Wranglers player this season.
"Local fans of the Wranglers know Ramonce from his time on the National Championship University of Texas team, and they know what a special player he is," said Wranglers Offensive Coordinator Dixie Wooten. "Ramonce is finally comfortable playing the indoor game and it has really shown the past three or four games."
The Wranglers are on the road this week for the final time this regular season, as they travel to the Pacific Northwest to face the Everett Raptors. Kickoff is 9 p.m. CST on Thursday, June 7.
Fans unable to travel to Everett can view the Wranglers by clicking the "Watch Games Live" link through the team's website, www.allenwranglers.com. There will also be a radio broadcast of the game by Sonny Clark and the Couch Potato Sports Show, which fans can listen to at www.blogtalkradio.com.
The Wranglers return home next weekend for the regular season finale game against the New Mexico Stars on June 16.
