Storm’s T.T. Toliver earns AFL weekly honor
(BTLS Staff) TAMPA, Fla. – A member of the Tampa Bay Storm was honored by the league Tuesday, capturing the Cutter’s Catch of the Week award for his performance last week against San Jose.
During the Storm’s 36-27 loss to the Sabercats T.T. Toliver became the 17th player in professional football history to reach 1,000 career receptions. He finished the game with six catches for 84 yards and a touchdown.
With 4:21 left in the second quarter the Daytona Beach product hauled in a 9-yard pass from quarterback Jason Boltus, making him the fourth player in Arena Football League history to reach 1,000 career receptions.
Toliver has 1,004 catches and needs just one more to pass Chris Jackson for third all-time in AFL history. With three more catches against the New Orleans VooDoo on Friday night he will pass Canadian Football Hall-of-Famer Terry Vaughn for 14th all-time on professional football history.
In addition to playing for the Storm, Toliver also spent time in the AFL with Orlando and Nashville. In 2002 he spent the year on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers practice squad – that was the year the team won their first and only Super Bowl.
The five-time AFL champion Storm are playing in their 28th season. Friday is ‘Dawg Night’ at the Amalie Arena for their game against the VooDoo.
