Riptide Make Roster Moves

April 15, 2004 - arenafootball2 (af2) - San Diego Riptide News Release

SAN DIEGO – Still looking for his first win as head coach of the San Diego Riptide, Mouse Davis has made several roster moves to prepare for this week’s match up in Bakersfield, adding quarterback Tony Corbin and reassigning WR/DB Darnell Lacy.

Corbin, who spent one game on the Riptide roster in 2003, was added to the team this week after Week 2 starter Kevin Feterik was moved to the short-term injured reserve with a finger injury. Feterik left the ‘Tide’s game against Green Bay in the second quarter after injuring the index finger on his throwing hand, giving way to Riptide veteran Kane Claunch.

Corbin will replace Feterik on the roster in Week 3 against the Bakersfield Blitz and will serve as Claunch’s backup as the team plays its first intra-divisional game of the season. The 6-foot-four-inch, 215-pound Sacramento State graduate was a First-Team All-Conference player his senior season and completed 351 passes for 4,866 yards and 34 touchdowns during his college career. He was drafted in the seventh round of the NFL draft in 1997 by the San Diego Chargers and went on to spend time in NFL Europe, Canadian Football League and Arena Football League.

In addition to the addition of Corbin, Davis made one other roster move, reassigning Lacy to the league office this week as well. Lacy was in his third season in af2, having spent parts of the last two years with the Riptide. In 2003 he caught 14 balls for a total of 122 yards and three touchdowns while compiling 17 tackles on defense. This season he played in two games, recording 5.5 tackles.

The ‘Tide will take on the Bakersfield Blitz this Saturday at 7 p.m. at Centennial Garden in Bakersfield. The Blitz, who are an expansion team in 2004 after their original incarnation moved to Fresno after the 2003 season, are 1-1 after two weeks, tied atop the National West Division. They are led on defense by former Riptide standout and 2003 af2 tackles leader, Kenny Haslip.

San Diego returns home the following week to take on the Central Valley Coyotes at the Sports Arena. Riptide t-shirts will be given to the first 4,000 fans, courtesy of AFRC. Game time is set for 7 p.m. and fans can get their tickets by stopping by the Sports Arena or visiting Ticketmaster on-line.
