A member of The Alliance of American Football, The Arizona Hotshots are led by an experienced professional coaching staff and front office. The Hotshots feature Arizona native Rick Neuheisel as head coach and long-time NFL front office executive Phil Savage as General Manager.

The Arizona Hotshots team headquarters while in training camp in San Antonio will be the Holiday Inn Riverwalk in San Antonio with practices being conducted at Southwest High School.


Coach Neuheisel on the offense today:"Better today. Better focus today. Again, we let the wind be a reason not be at our best. We can never predict the elements, so you just have to be mentally tougher than that. I like where our team came back. They responded to the challenge of having a bad day. They came back and had a good one."

Coach Neuheisel on having a kicker and punter at practice: "How about that! It looked like football because there was kicks today. Excited about having those guys in camp. Obviously that will enhance our special team works as we get ready to make some decisions about our roster. We are about a week away from making those tough decisions."

Jeff Locke on the Alliance of American Football: "I just love that there's another opportunity for guys who don't make the NFL because there really hasn't been. Especially if you come out of college and don't make it that first year, there hasn't been a way to develop and try to get back in. From what I've seen so far, it's going to be a competitive league on it's own. "

Jeff Locke on what he's most looking forward to:

"Playing in my hometown. I grew up in Glendale, AZ so it will be cool to be back by family and my old friends. I get to play for my home state for once."
