GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (KSNB) - Nebraska Danger running back Davonte Sapp-Lynch is making a name for himself in the IFL in the first two weeks of the season. Sapp-Lynch's success in Week 2 has earned him Nebraska Player of the Week honors in the process.
Despite a tough loss to Green Bay, Sapp-Lynch punched in three more touchdowns for the Danger. Pairing that with his three rushing touchdowns in week one, and Sapp-Lynch sits in second-overall for the league rushing TD totals.
Lynch entered the year being known as the younger brother to Super Bowl-winning running back Marshawn Lynch. Through two games, Sapp-Lynch is also third in the league in total rushing yards per game, averaging 63.5 yards on the ground per outing.
Next up for the Danger is a tall task, as the Sioux Falls Storm come to Grand Island for the Taste of the Heartland game on Saturday, March 9. Sapp-Lynch will look to continue running wild on the league when this game kicks off at 7 p.m. inside the Heartland Events Center.
