ASI Panthers tab McCreery as Starting QB for opener

March 12, 2015 - American Indoor Football (AIF) - ASI Panthers News Release

The ASI Panthers team owner and Associate Head Coach Bill Mattis announced today that barring any unforeseen issue, Jim McCreery would be the team's starting QB at the season opening game in Saginaw Michigan next Friday night 3/20.

McCreery, a 6'0" 185 lbs QB who hails from Bristol PA attended Temple University but did not play football in college. This past year McCreery guided the Panthers as the team's QB in their spring and winter league semi pro competition.

Also playing QB for the Panthers this season will be Joey Ambrosini (Trumbull, CT) and Juice Granger (Temple University).

Bill Mattis (ASI Associate Head Coach/Owner):

"All three QBs have looked good in pre-season but Jim is the one who knows the system best and has the most indoor football experience. Juice and Joey just need to get out there and play, so both may see some time with our D-League team at some point this year. But at the same time, I'm prepared to use them if something were to happen to Jim...knock wood"

"Jim isn't especially great at any one thing but he does do everything well. He can also lead the team by example and the guys look to him as one of our leaders. Jim is definitely a guy who could be capable of playing at the PIFL or even the AFL level after some time with us this season."

"The guys are ready to start the season. I think they're tired of seeing each other across the ball at practice. They want to start playing against somebody else. I'm sure we'll be ready when next Friday is finally here."
