Lazio Ducks QB, RB top passer, rusher in Italy after Week 3

After three weeks of play we have surprise leaders in Italy passing and rushing as Rome’s new club, the Lazio Ducks lay claim to both categories early in the season.

Ducks QB Hans Fortune tops all passers while Lazio RB Mike Gentili is the leading rusher.

The Firenzi Guelfi lead Italy’s Division I with three straight wins behind the legs and arm of QB Tony Dawson who is 5th in passing and 3rd in rushing with his receivers Dayan Almeida and Mike Vanucci 2nd and 5th respectively in receiving. The defending champion Milano Seamen have only played one game which would explain the absence of anyone from the Seamen in any of the Top 5 categories.

Passing

Lazio Ducks QB Hans Fortune tops Division I in Italy by a wide margin with 638 yards passing and 5 TDs in three games. Jon Brown of the Bolzano Giants follows in second with 458 yards and 7 TDs while Parma Panthers steady QB Tommaso Monardi is 3rd with 413 yards and a league-best 9 TDs. Torino’s Chase Venuto is 4th with 402 yards and 4 TDs while Tony Dawson from the Guelfi is 5th with his 391 yards passing and 4 TDs.

Rushing

Lazio Ducks RB Mike Gentili tops all rushers in Italy gaining 290 yards while scoring 6 TDs on the ground. Next up is Torino’s Fabiano Hale who has rushed for 224 yards and 2 TDs. Parma Panthers Alessandro Malpeli Avali is 3rd with 201 yards and 2 TDs. Firenzi Guelfi QB Tony Dawson is not only among the top passers but is also the 4th leading rusher with 191 yards in three games while Bergamo Lions young QB Andrea Fimiani is 5th with 166 yards.

Receiving

 

Parma Panthers WR Kris Durham has been the favorite target of his QB, Tommaso Monardi hauling in 231 yards in receptions and a league leading 5 TD catches. Dayan Almeida of the Guelfi is a distant 2nd with 167 receiving yards while Bolzano’s Mark Simone is 3rd with 166 yards and 4 TDs. Marco Bonacci from the Bolzano Giants has caught 138 yards in passes from Jon Brown while Firenzi’s Mike Vanucci is the 5th leading receiver in Italy with his 130 yards.
