Stats leaders in Italy pulling away

Italy’s Div. I is heading into the home stretch and based on individual stats, clearly the Milano Seamen offense is kicking into a higher gear.

Mialno Seamen QB Luke Zahradka had another outstanding passing day, this time against the Lazio Ducks and has further increased his passing yardage lead but his leading targets, Stefano Di Tunisi and Xavier Mitchell are quickly climbing up the receiving yardage list.

Firenze Guelfi’s Silas Nacita, one of the top running backs in the German Football League for three years, is now the runaway rushing leader and has moved even further ahead.

After six weeks, the Firenze Guelfi and Milano Seamen still have the most representation but the race is tight.

The Guelfi and Milano Seamen each have three players among the top five in the three offensive categories. The Lazio Ducks, Bolzano Giants and Ancona Dolphins have two each while the Bergamo LionsParma Panthers and Bologna Warriors have one player each. The Torino Giaguari is the sole team without representation.

Bolzano Giants QB Austin Gahafer moved back up into 2nd with 1,111 yards and 14 TDs. Lazio Ducks QB Tyler Johnson has  dropped down into 3rd now with 1.101 yards and 14 TDs. Lynx Hawthorne of the Firenze Guelfi has climbed back onto the chart in 4th with 814 yards while Ancona Dolphins QB Nelson Hughes is now tied for 4th with 814 yards and 9 TDs.


Firenze Guelfi’s Silas Nacita is firmly entrenched in the top spot with 588 yards rushing after five games. Bergamo’s Alexander Germany stays 2nd with 376 yards and 6 TDs while James Flanders of the Bologna Warriors has entered the list after a 157 yard rushing day against the Parma Panthers. He now has 362 yards and is 3rd. Parma Panthers running back Modeste Pooda is now the 4th leading rusher with 362 yards while Lazio Ducks QB Tyler Johnson enters in 5th with 345 yards and 6 TDs.
