MVP race - Zach Edwards silencing the competition?

The story of the ELF cannot be told without the name Zach Edwards. The quarterback is throwing his name into the MVP voting hat again this year.

For the Paris Musketeers, a lot is pointing in the right direction this season. In a competitive Western Conference, they have won three out of their first four games - thanks in part to quarterback Edwards. 

The veteran, who has been playing in the ELF since 2021, when the league started, has found a home in France. After a strong first season with the Musketeers, Edwards is showing his talents once again this year. 

Zach Edwards breaking records

He currently needs 89 passing yards to become the first player in ELF history to break the 10,000 passing yards barrier. in the current season, Edwards has accumulated 976 passing yards along with eleven touchdowns, while throwing three picks. 

His experience as a passer stands out. He often evades pressure well and rarely throws passes into dangerous areas. His deep passes in particular cause problems for defenses and can quickly turn games on their head.

At the same time, defensive players must be on their guard when he sets off on foot. He has already collected 227 rushing yards and two touchdowns as a runner.

Paris set to make a playoff push?

With Zach Edwards at the helm, Paris look to build upon a strong debut season in 2023. This week, they will face the Hamburg Sea Devils in a crucial divisional matchup. 

Zach Edwards, whose rise in the ELF could not even have been calculated any better by an autopilot, will not only have his eyes on the record books, but also on a potential playoff push.
