GLEN FOX NAMED WEEK 15 NATIONAL GUARD MVP
The Arena Football League named Orlando Predators wide receiver Glen Fox it’s National Guard MVP of the Week for his week 15 performance against the Tampa Bay Storm. In that game, Fox tied a Predators franchise record with 16 receptions in a 64-40 victory.
Fox was surprised and excited about the honor: “I feel good about it, but I feel better that we got a win. I’ve been here for just a couple weeks now and we are just starting to click on offense and get things put together,” said Fox. “It feels better because it is almost like a team award, meaning that we won a big game.”
He finished the game with three touchdowns, 138 receiving yards and 32 rushing yards, and was also named the Russell Athletic Offensive Player of the Game.
“Setting aside the individual stuff, I look at it as a more memorable victory as a team. Everyone in the locker room was excited after the game and I just felt happy to have been able to do my part to get a team victory.”
Fox beat out Utah Blaze wide receiver Tysson Poots and Kansas City Command wide receiver Jackie Chambers for the week 15 honors.
“I want to thank all the fans that voted for me. It’s unbelievable that I have just been here for a couple weeks and still got all those votes. It is definitely a tribute to the fans and their support for this team.”
Fox grew up in Iowa and attended South Dakota State University, where he was the team’s top pass catcher. He arrived in Orlando in late May via trade from the Arizona Rattlers. He is thankful the team has been so helpful with his transition.
“The coaches, the players, they have all been great. Since I arrived here, everyone has been welcoming,” says Fox. But they aren’t the only ones that have made an impression on Fox, who has been really enjoying playing in The Jungle.
“This is by far the best Arena Football atmosphere I have ever played in. There are a lot of fans here and they are definitely noisy and supportive. I can’t tell you how many people came up to me and talked to me after the game. It made me feel like I was welcome here.”
