Soul's Jackson is co-AFL Offensive Player of the Week

Philadelphia Soul WR Chris Jackson was named co-Offensive Player of the Week by the AFL Tuesday.

Jackson recorded 10 receptions for a game-high 167 yards and six touchdowns as the Soul (4-0) defeated the Los Angeles Avengers (2-2), 71-34, at STAPLES Center on Thursday.

Jackson posted receiving touchdowns of 23, 22, 28, five, 15 and 30 yards as Philadelphia’s offense scored on 10 of 12 possessions, including seven consecutive to begin the game. The Washington State product is the first player to post six receiving touchdowns in a game this season, and holds the AFL record for most games with six-or-more receiving touchdowns with five in his career.
