During the Saskatoon Sirens magical season, no player has had her star shine brighter than Anne Erler. One of several US imports on the Sirens roster, the others being Ogom Chijindu, Tamar Fennell and Heather Furr, Erler took the snaps behind center. She was accustomed to the position having already played quarterback with her hometown Green Bay Chill in 2011.
In Green Bay, Erler accumulated 279 passing yards and 4 touchdown passes, while rushing for 139 yards. She also contributed on the defensive side of the ball, logging 6.5 tackles, 2 interceptions, and recovering 2 fumbles.
Although Erler’s offensive numbers with Saskatoon were not as prominent as her Green Bay numbers, she brought great leadership and stability to the Sirens offense. With a sparkling passer rating of 130.7, Erler had 6 touchdowns and no interceptions. Defensively, Erler came into her own leading all LFL Canada players with 6 interceptions, one of them returned for a touchdown. Erler complemented this with 15 solo tackles and is a worthy candidate for the Defensive Player of the Year honors. “The pressure from our line and coverage from everyone else is what led me to be able to have the interceptions I had this year. Yes, [it is] a HUGE HONOR and I am stoked for our next game to raise my stats even higher!”
