Kissimmee contracts two players

November 17, 2004 - National Indoor Football League (NIFL) - Kissimmee Kreatures News Release

LAKELAND, Fla. – The Kissimmee Kreatures and Head Coach Marquette Smith announced today the signing of thirty letters of intent, and the first two officially contracted players.

The Franchise’s first tryout combine was this past Saturday, in Casselberry, Fl. There was a 60 player turnout and 30 players pledged to a letter of intent with the Kreatures. This was the first time in NIFL history for a 50% success.

The first two players to sing a contract are, former Orlando Predator, Addallah Wiggins, and former Bethune-Cookman standout, Aaron Shepard.

“Addallah is simply a freak of nature,” stated Smith, “He’s big, fast, strong, and has great technique.” As a defensive end, he stands 6’3” tall and weighs in at 287 lbs. He spent two seasons in with the American Football League’s Vegas Gladiators and one season with the Orlando Predators.

Aaron Shepard, a four year starting linebacker at Bethune-Cookman College, stands 6’3” tall and weighs 255 lbs. “Aaron was all over the field at this weekends camp, he caused chaos to our offense. He was so good that I was unable to observe the offense due to him disrupting every play. He is a prototype linebacker,” states Smith. When asked about playing for the Kreatures, Shepard stated, “I can’t wait until March so I can play my first professional game in purple and gold.”
