IMG 4568 a

JACKSONVILLE – The National Arena League announced on Wednesday that Sharks defensive end Jermiah Price earned Defensive Player of the Week and kicker Nick Belcher earned Special Teams Player of the Week in their Week 6 performances against the Monterrey Steel. This is the second time this season two Sharks have won league awards in the same week, the first time being Week 3.

Jermiah Price was a force to be reckoned with spending the majority of the evening in the Steel’s backfield. He has already made a name for himself in his first season with the Sharks, leading the league with four sacks. Price wreaked havoc on quarterback Kasey Peters, causing multiple qb hurries, three tackles, one sack, a forced fumble and a tackle for a loss.

Nick Belcher is the premiere kicker in the NAL, leading the league in most kicking categories including PAT Kicking percentage (86.8) and PATs made (33). With this award, Nick Belcher becomes the first player in NAL history to win two Special Teams weekly honors. Belcher’s award was much deserved as he hit a big 23 yard field goal, seven extra points and an astonishing three deuces for an overall 16 points towards the Sharks 60-21 victory. This is Belcher’s first year with the Sharks after kicking for coach Stoute with Cedar Rapids of the IFL in 2016.

This week the Sharks take on the Columbus Lions at Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena, Saturday April 29 at 7pm.


Offensive Player of the Week: Michael Reeve - Columbus Lions

Defensive Player of the Week: Jermiah Price - Jacksonville

Special Teams Player of the Week: Nick Belcher - Jacksonville
