Heroes Ink Seven More
The Huntington Heroes of the American Indoor Football Association have announced the signings of seven more players as they prepare for their 2008 season. The Heroes added depth at the wide receiver position and picked up two key defensive players.
The Heroes have signed the following:
Tario Frederick (5'9" 176) is a wide receiver out of Bethel College in Tennesee. Tario is a great route runner with good hands and natural instincts.
Demario Mayweather (5'8" 175), also out of Bethel College, is a sure handed wide receiver that has great field speed.
Marcus Bryant (5'11" 185) comes to the Heroes from Stillman College in Alabama. Marcus is an explosive and physical wide out who had an outstanding career at Stillman.
Carl Jones (5'11" 195) is a RBWR out of the University of Cincinnati. Carl is a true athlete who loves to have the ball in his hands both as a wide receiver and a running back.
Drouzon "Tree" Quillen (6'6" 215) is a product of Lousiana Monroe and also played indoor football in 2007 with the Evansville Bluecats of the UIFL. Tree, as notably known, brings a big frame and great speed to the Heroes offense. He brings a lot of experience other than college ball, Tree was on the draft board after graduation and has worked out with several NFL teams.
"We have a great group of wide receivers coming in to camp and we are going to have some tough decisions to make when we finalize our roster, but I'd say that is a good problem to have" commented offensive coordinator Kenny Johnson.
Eddie Miller (5'9" 200) is a DBLBWR out of San Jose State. Eddie brings in a wealth of indoor experience having played in the IFL and the NIFL over the past 4 seasons. "Eddie is a guy who can play and has played anywhere on the field and his experience brings a lot to this team" said defensive coordinator Charles Gunnings.
Craig Chisolm (5'10 175) is DB who needs no introduction to the Huntington area. Chisolm is a graduate of Marshall University and has spent the last two season with the Huntington Heroes. "I am glad to have Chisolm back on this squad, he is very talented kid, and has valuable experience, said Head Coach Teddy Keaton.
"We have a solid squad, but we won't know anything until we hit the field. We look very good on paper, but I don't know anyone who won a single game on paper, so we have a lot of work to do and we are ready to get started" added Head Coach Teddy Keaton.
The Heroes open training camp on February 26th at the Big Sandy Superstore Arena. Fans and media are invited to attend practices unless otherwise noted. Practice starts at 3:30 each day of camp. The Heroes open up their 2008 season on Friday March 14th at the Big Sandy Superstore Arena against the Florida StingRays. Great seats are still available for all of the Heroes home games.
