Vipers Add Former Eagles Quarterback
The Tennessee Valley Vipers have announced that the team has been assigned former University of Delaware stand-out Andy Hall. The 6'3" 228 pound quarterback led the Blue Hens to the 2003 Division 1-AA National Championship after transferring from Georgia Tech. During that season, Hall completed 62% of his passes for 2764 yards and 25 touchdowns. He also ran for 710 yards and eight touchdowns, and was named the Atlantic 10 Conference Offensive Player of the Year.
After college, Hall was selected by the Philadelphia Eagles in the 6th round of the 2004 NFL draft, and spent two seasons with the Eagles. After bouncing back and forth between the practice squad and the active roster, Hall was released prior to the 2006 season and signed with the Las Vegas Gladiators of the AFL. He then spent last season with the Nashville Kats under Vipers Head Coach Dean Cokinos. "We are excited about adding Andy to our team. He has an impressive background as a player and is a quality guy and a great fit for our organization, " said Cokinos.
The Vipers training camp will begin Sunday, March 9th with players reporting the day before. The regular season will begin Saturday, March 29th against the South Georgia Wildcats at the Von Braun Center at 7:30pm. Season tickets for the Vipers are now on sale and can be purchased by calling the Vipers at 256-428-HISS. For more information, please log on to the Vipers website at www.vipersaf2.com.
