Sharks Still Have Hope
Even though the 2009 season didn't end up the way the Sharks Organization hoped it would, a number of players give the franchise hope for the future with their performances in 2009.
WR Brandon Hussey continued his dominance with the team. Hussey has had three straight 100 catch/1000 yard performances for the team. Hussey holds virtually all the teams receiving records and surpassed the 400 point, 4000 yard plateau for his career in the Sharks final game of the year.
Fellow wideout Jonathan Graham did erase Hussey's name from one category in the Sharks record book... receptions in a season. Graham became the single season leader in that category by hauling in 119 receptions in 2009.
WR Anthony Clark also replaced Hussey's mark for points in a game with his 6 TD, 36 point performance against the Arkansas Twisters on May 30th.
QB Sedale Threatt establishes a new team record for Total Rushing Yards Gained with 168, but fell 5 yards shy of FB Booker Jenkins Net Total of 145 set last season.
The Sharks also set a new team high for points scored in a game when they put up 65 against the Oklahoma City Yard Dawgz Memorial Day afternoon. The Sharks also established another franchise first during the same game scoring on every possession.
The Sharks also handed out their end of season team awards on Monday night. Wilbert Martin won the teams Defensive Player of the Year Honor while Center Roland Courtney was the Sharks Lineman of the Year. The Iron Man Award went to Henry Hall for his performance on Special Teams and in the Secondary. Brandon Hussey was the teams Offensive Player of the Year for the second consecutive season and Jonathan Graham won the Coaches Award for his performance both on and off the field.
The Sharks next challenge will be to find the proper chemistry to build around their core players and put together a team that will be more competitive in 2010. The Sharks finished the year 0-9 in the Southwest Division.
