January 16, 2019 - Alliance of American Football (AAF) - Arizona Hotshots News Release


The Hotshots suited up in full pads today for a joint practice with the Orlando Apollos. The two sides went through one-on-one drills at every position.

The Hotshots go back to Southwest High School on Thursday for a light practice.

While Coach Neuheisel is not ready to make a depth chart, Trevor Knight was the first quarterback on the field for seven-on-seven drills today, though John Wolford is also working with the starting group.

Newly acquired WR Freddie Martino participated in his first practice today.

Practice came to an abrupt end when CB Kamari Cotton-Moya landed roughly after an interception on the first play of team drills. Cotton-Moya is undergoing further evaluation for a right knee injury.

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 Rick Neuheisel on practice with Orlando:"We tried to make sure that we came together as one big team, so we're all getting better. As we said, we want to meet each other in Las Vegas (at The Alliance championship game). That'll be the plan."

Coach Rick Neuheisel on ending practice right after Cotton-Moya injury: "You don't want anybody playing with any caution. You've got to be playing and getting all your assignments done. If you're thinking in the back of your mind about trying to stay safe, it's just not the right thing to do."

DB Devin Chappell on practice vs. Orlando today: "Our practices are very competitive just going against each other. It was just great to see our team going against another team. As the DBs, we've all got to ride together and we're all the Hotshots so we've got to ride for that Arizona. It wasn't too bad, but it got a little chippy."

WR Deion Holliman, on QB Trevor Knight's day: "The ball came out of his hand great, and he gave our receivers a chance to show what we've got. The extra reps that we've been doing in practice paid off (Wednesday)."
