Anthony Wells, Everett Hawks
Coach Wells joins the Everett hawks via the N.I.F.L. Cincinnati Marshals. His head coaching expertise with the Marshals was added to individualize the Hawks coaching staff. After working with the defense in his first week with the Hawks, Wells was named the new head coach.

Coach Wells, nickname "T-Wells," began his football career at Rochester High School in Pennsylvania where he also competed in track and basketball.

After High School, Well's attended Kent State University where he received a degree in communications. His football career continued at Kent State under the direction of Glenn Mason who helped him to receive a 1st team all-conference honorable mention and later to become an All-American.

Wells is an eight year veteran of the Arena Football League where he had stints with the Florida Bobcats, Miami Hooters, and the Cleveland Thunderbolts. He played from 1991 to 1999 as a 6'2, 220 pound, wide receiver / defensive back.

His coaching career immediately succeeded his playing career and includes AF2 offensive coordinator positions with the Wilkes-Barre Pioneers (13-3), the Charleston Swamp-foxes (9-7), and the Pensacola Barracuda's. Wells continued his success upon receiving the head coaching job with the Cincinnati Marshals. Wells took over at mid-season and lead the mediocre Marshals at 4-4, into the Atlantic division champ game, ending the season at 10-6.

Gary Compton, Head Coach
Gary comes to the Blitz almost straight off the field. In 2004, Gary played his last season for the Arena Football League as a star receiver for the Philadelphia Soul. Previous years were spent playing for the Dallas Texans, the Fortworth Cavalry, the Milwaukee Mustangs, the Indiana Firebirds, the Grand Rapids Rampage, and the Tampa Bay Storm. For the 2005 season, Gary coached the Philadelphia Soul as their Offensive Coordinator.
Gary started his football career in his hometown Irving, Texas. He attended East Texas State University where he was a four time All-Lone Star Conference, a two time All-American, and a member of the 1990 LSC Championship team.

Wall threw for six touchdowns in the first (and only meeting) between the two teams. The teams were evenly matched throughout the game until the third quarter when the Hawks fell behind.

Again the Hawks secondary will be required to stop the deep threat. John Fields must get loose and put pressure on Wall.
