NELSON NAMED AFL OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK

August 7, 2019
The Arena Football League announced today that Washington Valor quarterback Arvell Nelson has been named Offensive Player of the Week for his performance in Game 2 of Washington’s semifinal series against the Philadelphia Soul.

Nelson threw for 363 yards and scored five total touchdowns (four passing, one rushing), marking the 11th time this season he scored 5+ touchdowns in a game and the third time he threw for over 300 yards in a game. Sunday’s game marked the fifth time this season that four different Valor receivers caught at least one touchdown from Nelson. With 4:37 left in the first half, Nelson found wideout Josh Reese for a 17-yard score, surpassing 2,000 career postseason passing yards.

The performance concluded a record-breaking season for Nelson, who led the Valor offense to a franchise-best 44.8 points per game. Nelson set a number of single-season franchise records in 2019: completions (240), attempts (412), passing yards (2,980), passing touchdowns (54), rushing attempts (75), rushing yards (226) and rushing touchdowns (19).
