Digest (Aug. 8): Brigade's Robert Hayes earns AFL's weekly defensive award

Brigade defensive lineman Robert Hayes was named the Arena Football League Defensive Player of the Week. Hayes had three tackles, a sack, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery in a 41-35 loss to the Washington Valor in Week 18. With just over nine minutes remaining in the third quarter and Washington driving into Baltimore territory, Hayes sacked Valor quarterback Warren Smith, forced and recovered a fumble, protecting a one-score lead. Hayes ranks second in the AFL this season with 11 tackles for loss and fourth in the league with eight sacks — both of which are single-season career highs.
