Week 4 top performers: Shining bright like diamonds

Running backs were unstoppable

There’s no need to debate Glen Toonga's performance on Game Day 4 for the Sea Devils. Toonga accounted for over 258 of the team’s 305 total yards and marked 1 touchdown. He was unstoppable against the Musketeers' previously strong defense. Toonga, who has a good chance of being Week 4’s MVP, averaged 6.6 yards per rush and 17.3 per catch. After Week 4, he already gained 541 rushing yards and 6 touchdowns.

Dwayne Obi was another top performing running back on this weekend. He delivered against Cologne Centurions with his rushes and catches, totaling 159 yards and 2 touchdowns. His average of 5.6 yards per run helped new Bravos quarterback Steven Duncan to easily integrate into his new team.


Homegrown wide receivers on another level

Jakob Neugebauer stood out in the Hamburg Sea Devils' game against the Prague Lions. He created incredible 234 receiving yards and scored 2 touchdowns. Neugebauer, alongside quarterback Javarian Smith, was by far one the main reasons for Sea Devils' victory. The 26-year-old wide receiver effectively filled in for Theo Landström's absence and was especially targeted by QB Smith in crucial situations.

Louis Geyer is already well-known in the ELF. He helped his Surge win 55-9 against Milano Seamen with 127 yards and 3 touchdowns. Geyer was unstoppable for Milano's defensive backfield and proved himself as a reliable and safe target for QB Reilly Hennessey. The 22-year-old Geyer already gained 239 yards and 5 touchdowns in just three games. Is he perhaps on his way to become the best receiver in the league?



Defensive dominance

Looking at Berlin Thunder vs. Vienna Vikings, both teams showed strong defensive performances. But especially Vienna's Niki Terlitza was unstoppable. He generated 3.5 sacks, 4.5 TFL, and 11 total tackles against Berlin. The 22-year-old is having a strong season for the Vikings and continues to make great plays.

And, here is another Hamburg player with an outstanding performance this Game Day: Michael Keshinro. Due to his 2.5 sacks, 3.5 TFL, and 8 total tackles, Prague Lions' offense couldn't get much going. With constant pressure from Hamburg’s defensive line led by Keshinro, Lions quarterback Kare Lyles only created 75 yards through the air.
