After four rounds of play in the French Federation of American Football Elite division, the Thonon Black Panthers remain the only unbeaten team thanks in part to the play of QB Clark Evans who leads all rushers in yardage gained and is the fifth leading passer.
He is not alone as St. Ouen l’Aumône Cougars QB Luke Casey also finds himself in two categories, passing, where he is fourth overall, and rushing (third).
The Montpellier Hurricanes and Marseilles Blue Stars have three players among the three categories while the St. Ouen l’Aumône Cougars, Grenoble Centaures and Thonon Black Panthers have two each. The Bron-Villeurbanne Falcons, La Courneuve Flash and Rouen Leopards each have one player. The Aix-en-Provence Argonautes, Asnieres Molosses, Evry Corsaires and Amiens Spartiates do not have a single player among the top five in any category.
Marseille Blue Stars QB Chase Burton tops the passing yardage charts after leading his team to a 3-1 record and throwing for 992 yards and a league-best 12 TDs in four games. He is followed by Hughes Hunter of the 2-1 Montpellier Hurricanes who is not far behind with 935 yards and 11 TDs. Grenoble Centaures (2-2) pivot Sonny Weishaupt is third with 695 yards while Luke Casey of the St. Ouen l’Aumône Cougars (2-2). He has thrown for 602 yards.
