SPOKANE -- Spokane Shock defensive back Mervin Brookins was awarded the Arena Football League Highlight of the Week on Tuesday.
The highlight happened last Friday night when the Shock took down the Chicago Rush 63-49 to secure home field advantage throughout the playoffs.
Brookins returned a kickoff 56-yards for a touchdown to give the Shock a 14-7 lead. He finished the game with 156 yards on seven returns, while also registering three tackles on defense.
Brookins' play was so big that it was highlighted on SportsCenter's "Top Plays" that night, a rare feat for a big play in the AFL this year.
