Dylan Favre seems to be fitting in nicely in Cedar Rapids.

The former St. Stanislaus quarterback was recently named the Indoor Football League's Offensive Player of the Week for Week 6.

Favre, who quarterbacked at Mississippi State, Pearl River Community College and UT-Martin, led his Cedar Rapids Titans to a 60-57 upset over the Sioux Falls Storm. The victory snapped the Storm's 22-game winning streak.

Favre threw for seven touchdowns in the game, including the go-ahead score on a 6-yard scramble where he had to go up and over a defender to cross the goal line.

In the game, Favre completed 21 of 26 passes for 190 yards and four touchdowns. He also rushed 12 times for 35 yards and three scores.

Favre has had plenty of success in his first professional season, leading the Titans to a 3-2 mark.

The high-scoring IFL -- with results like 78-71 and 54-45 -- fits Favre's gun-slinger approach to the game.

Heading into Saturday's game against the Green Bay Blizzard, Favre has completed 68.9 percent of his passes for 708 yards and 15 touchdowns against eight interceptions. He has also rushed for 89 yards and six scores.

Favre's 141.6 yards per game rank seventh in the league. He also ranks among the league's leaders in completion percentage (second), passing yards (third), passing touchdowns (third), interceptions (first) and rushing touchdowns (second).

College football fans may recognize a few of Favre's former teammates, including former Southern Miss receiver Ryan Balentine, TCU running back Waymon James, Louisiana Tech defensive lineman Devon McKinney and Georgia offensive lineman A.J. Harmon.
