Hawks Add More Experience
EVERETT - Keeping with his trend of adding veteran players with playoff experience, Everett Hawks Head Coach Cedric Walker has brought in yet another player with an impressive af2 resume.
The Hawks have been assigned DS Charles Ealy but the af2 League Office. Ealy (5-10, 200 UNLV) comes to Everett by way of Louisville, with whom he spent the 2006 season. With the Fire, Ealy ranked 6th on the team in total tackles with 29, and 3rd on the team with 8 passes defensed.
The Fire was one of the 4 teams from the American Conference East Division that qualified for the playoffs. Along with the East Division Champion Green Bay Blizzard, Manchester Wolves and Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Pioneers, the Fire entered the postseason as the #6 seed. They traveled to Memphis to play the 2006 ArenaCup Champion Xplorers, and lost a wild one, 83-61.
Even though the Fire lost in the opening round, Ealy had a solid game. He led the Fire in tackles (4.0), had 2 of their 3 pass break-ups, and led a defense that kept pace with the reigning champs until the decisive 4th quarter.
Ealy will join forces in the Hawks defensive backfield with fellow new arrival DS Ray Little, who comes to the Hawks after spending part of the 2006 season with their West Division rivals, the Stockton Lightning.
