Three Power Players Earn All-Arena Honors
PITTSBURGH (August 14, 2014) - Three members of the Pittsburgh Power have earned All-Arena honors for the 2014 Arena Football League season. Power center Antonio Narcisse was named First Team All-Arena by the AFL and lineman Colin Madison and kicker Julian Rauch earned Second Team honors.
Narcisse anchored the Power's offensive line as a center during the 2014 campaign. He was acquired early in the season from Portland to join his former coach Ron James with the Power. Narcisse, along with Madison, helped keep Power QB Tommy Grady upright by allowing the second least amount of sacks over the season. Madison added two receptions for 16 yards as a tight end.
In his second season, kicker Julian Rauch finished a perfect five-for-five on field goal attempts. Utilizing his golden foot, Rauch won three games for the Power in 2014, kicking game-winning field goals against Philadelphia and Iowa and knocking through an extra point to beat Orlando.
Narcisse, Madison and Rauch are the first Power players since P.J. Berry to be named to All-Arena teams. In 2012, Berry was named First Team All-Arena as a kick returner. The three honorees helped guide the Power to a franchise-best record of 15-3 and to the first playoff berth in team history.
