STEAM’S LAURAN ZIEGLER AMONG FAVORITES FOR MID-SEASON MOST VALUABLE PLAYER POLL
(ATLANTA, GEORGIA)- Tuesday, June 30, 2015)
Lauran Ziegler has played for four different teams in her four-year Legends Football League career and, while her team colors have changed every year, her level of play has consistently been among the elite of the league. Her three consecutive All-Fantasy Team selections are proof of that.
Ziegler, now playing for Atlanta, is among the league leaders in both offensive and defensive categories this season and a recent LFL360.com fan poll has Ziegler leading ChrisDell Harris of Chicago by 2% (45-43) in fan MVP voting.
After playing the previous three seasons in Florida, most recently with Jacksonville, Ziggy joined the Steam for the 2015 season and quickly became a leader on both sides of the ball while playing receiver and running back on offense and safety on defense.
Ziegler leads Atlanta, and the league, in receiving yards per game with 39, receptions with 17 and touchdown catches with six as well as having accounted for the second most rushing yards (68 on 12 attempts) on the team while scoring two more touchdowns.
Ziegler has 18 tackles as part of the toughest defense to score on in the LFL, good for fifth most in the league.
