Spartans QB Hatcher blessed with seasoned receivers

February 12, 2007 - World Indoor Football League 2 (WIFL 2) - Augusta Colts News Release

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - The most a rookie quarterback can ask for is veterans receivers. Augusta's Brandon Hatcher didn't hesitate to give credit to Anthony Young and Marvin Stone following the Spartans' 49-47 victory over the Daytona Beach Thunder Sunday.

"My receivers helped me out so much,'' said Hatcher, who finished with 243 yards and five touchdowns. "It's a great feeling to know there's that experience out there."

Hatcher, who spent two years at Hawaii, went through the usual rookie initiation - smaller field, faster play, but settled down when he led the Spartans to a scoring drive on their first possession.

"That definitely helped my confidence," Hatcher said. NOTES: Augusta was awarded 218 "style points" by a committee of fans and media ... Daytona Beach garnered 100 ... Young was named offensive MVP, DB Kijana Thomas defensive MVP and Voncelles Allen the line MVP.
