J.R. Revere joins Vipers

March 25, 2006 - International Hockey League 2 (IHL 2) - Roanoke Valley Vipers News Release

COLUMBUS, GA --J.R. Revere can score six by land, or six by air. Georgia Southern University's first three-sport student-athlete joins the Valley Vipers as quarterback, filling the void left by Andrico Hines. Hines tore his ACL in the Valley Vipers' last game with the Raleigh Rebels.

Revere played basketball, baseball and football while attending Georgia Southern University. He lettered in these sports while attending LaGrange High School. In 1999 and 2000, Revere led the Eagles to two NCAA 1-AA national championships. He was later invited to try out for the Canadian Football League's Montreal Alouettes.

Coach Jason Gibson describes Revere as having a strong arm, and mobile in and out of the pocket.

"He's a quick learner," Gibson said of Revere. "Looking back at his career at Georgia Southern, he's proven that he's a winner.

"That speaks volumes about his character and leadership."

While Coach Gibson acknowledges the difficulty of replacing Hines, he admits to feeling comfortable with Revere leading the Valley Vipers for the rest of the season.

The Chattahoochee Valley Vipers are proud members of the American Indoor Football League, which is dedicated to bringing fans high quality, fast-paced indoor football to local arenas across North America. The Valley Vipers are based in Columbus, Georgia, and play at the Columbus Civic Center Arena. We invite you to visit our website, www.thevalleyvipers.com for more ticket and schedule information.
