Soul fullback Derrick Ross was named the Arena Football League's Russell Athletic Offensive Player of the Week for the opening week of the schedule, the league announced Tuesday.

Ross rushed for 46 yards on 12 carries and tied the AFL single-game record with six touchdowns in the Soul's 62-55 overtime loss to the Arizona Rattlers.

In 2007, Nashville's Dan Alexander set the single-game record.

Ross and the Soul will look to even their record at 1-1 as they travel to San Jose in Week 2 to take on the 1-0 SaberCats on March 23 at 8 p.m.
