The MLU announced Wednesday that Quinn Hunziker’s huge layout D on Boston star Jeff Graham has taken the honors of being the first Spikeball Defensive Play of the Week for the 2014 season.
While the Rumble fell to the Boston Whitecaps 14-22 in their Week 1 match-up, there were still plenty of exciting plays. With 3:07 left in the second quarter and Boston leading the Rumble 9-7, Brandon Malacek sent up a long huck to a streaking Jeff Graham.[iframe width=”628″ height=”360″ src=”//www.youtube.com/embed/g60_19Ftcyc” frameborder=”0″ allowfullscreen]
While it looked like Graham was about to rack up another score for the Whitecaps, Hunziker came out of nowhere to do his best Superman impression and get the D.
Reflecting on the play during his first MLU game, Hunziker was just looking to not get embarrassed by Graham.
“I just got burned. If I don’t get this D, I’ll never hear the end of this from my friends back home,” said Hunziker.
