Lions’ Wolfe Named PIFL Speical Teams Player of the Week

The Professional Indoor Football League announced that Columbus Lions kicker Lindsey Wolfe earned the Week 9 Special Teams Player of the Week award, his second nod this season.

Wolfe (6’0 180, Fort Valley St.) earned the Week 9 Special Teams Player of the Week nomination, first since Week2, by notching a league-high 14 points in the Lions 44-38 thrilling win over Nashville. He wedged in three Uno’s, was a perfect 5 for 5 on PAT attempts, and was 2 of 4 on field goal tries successfully connecting on attempts from 54 and 45 yards away.

At the end of the first half, Wolfe’s 54-yard field goal tied him for the longest field goal in PIFL history with former Lions all-time scoring leader Trey Crum who knocked his career long back in 2012. He leads all PIFL kickers with 15 Uno’s and is currently second in scoring with 72 points.

With the win, Columbus maintains their grip on first place and following their upcoming bye week the will close out the season with two of their three remaining games at home.

On May 30th they will host the last place Erie Explosion (1-6) for their annual “Cancer Awareness Night” game and then on June 13th for the regular season home finale and first time ever the Lions will host the Trenton Freedom (4-3).
