ReFocused: Orlando Apollos 31, Birmingham Iron 14

The Orlando Apollos remain undefeated with their 31-14 win over the Birmingham Iron on Saturday. Led by cornerback Keith Reaser, Orlando's defense sent starting signal-caller Luis Perez to the bench just seven passes and four yards into the contest and held Trent Richardson to just 21 yards on eight carries. Reaser's pick-six along with Garrett Gilbert‘s two scores through the air were too much for 27-year-old backup Keith Price & Co. to overcome.

Apollos wide receiver Charles Johnson was Gilbert's right-hand man in the affair, as he led the team in targets (10), receptions (six) and receiving yards (83). Former Miami (Fla.) defensive lineman Anthony Moten Jr. also showed up to play, logging two sacks against Birmingham's offensive line.

Reaser's pick-six in the first quarter pushed the momentum in favor of Orlando. He entered the Week 5 contest as the AAF's highest-graded cornerback at 92.4 and turned in another strong performance to ensure he stays on top.
