JACKSONVILLE – The Arena Football League announced Tuesday that Sharks’ wide receiver Joe Hills has earned the Week 18 J Lewis Small Playmaker of the Week.


In week 18, Superman soared to 92 yards off of only seven catches and scored four touchdowns to lift the Sharks’ over the Tampa Bay Storm in their climactic 54-35 regular season finale. The MVP candidate boasts the top spot in all major receiving categories with 162 receptions for 2020 yards and 58 touchdowns in 2016.


His 2020 yards makes him only the sixth player in AFL history to break 2000 and his 58 touchdowns fell only three short of Damien Harrell’s single season record 61. Hills carries the momentum of his historic season into Saturday’s playoff matchup in Orlando.
