Three Bandits participate in IWFL All-Star Game
Submitted By Kara Kimmel
Following the Independent Women's Football League Tier I and Tier II championship games, the West plays the East in the annual IWFL All-Star Game. Fremont's Bay Area Bandits were represented by quarterback Sandra Hernandez and offensive coordinator Tony Macon on the offensive side, along with middle linebacker La Star Brown on the defensive side of the ball. (Hernandez was chosen as a starter,)
Hernandez finished the regular season completing 65 of 153 passes for 839 yards and 16 touchdowns. She also had two TDs on the ground, accumulating 53 rushing yards.
Macon guided the offense, which helped the Bandits to a 5-3 regular season record; his coordination on offense also led them to the championship game, totaling 83 points in three post-season games.
Brown finished the season with 42 tackles, four sacks and five interceptions. She also helped out on offense, grabbing nine balls for 134 yards, as well as 98 yards rushing on 18 attempts. Brown was named the Bandits' MVP for the championship game.
Hernandez was the only Bandit to receive playing time in the game, but she played wide receiver due to an overabundance of quarterbacks. The West All Stars routed the East by a score of 43-6 in a game that was never close.
