SPOKANE: The Spokane Shock had the misfortune of playing in the best division in the AFL last season, as a 10-8 record was not good enough to propel Spokane to the postseason for the first time in franchise history. Shock fans hope that outcome will not be duplicated in 2013 and Head Coach Andy Olson was quick to field a team he believes can match up with the Shock's high-powered divisional foes. For the second consecutive year, the team will open camp with Erik Meyer under center. Meyer was lost for the season after suffering a concussion in Week 1 last year. The 17th-ranked rushing offense from a year ago still does not have a true fullback on the roster, but offensive lineman Andrew Nierman will likely fill the void once again. The team will also again rely on record-setting receiver Adron Tennell for big plays. Tennell set franchise marks last season for receptions, yards, touchdowns and points. He will be assisted this season by the returns of second-year men Steven Black and Jeffrey Soloman, as well as the additions of a handful of rookies, including fellow former Big XII standout Brandon Kinnie. The Shock will look to solve last season's defensive woes with a handful of fresh faces. Former Clemson Tigers Kourtnei Brown and Rennie Moore will join second-year man James Ruffin along the defensive line. Two more rookies, William Green and Chase Vaughn will also be in the mix. The linebackers look to be set, with Jack ' Terence Moore ' and Mac ' Beau Bell ' both returning from last year's squad. The team's biggest free agent acquisition came in the area that needed it the most ' the secondary. Spokane's defensive backfield will feature the League's leading tackler from a year ago, Cameron McGlenn, who joins the Shock after two seasons in Iowa. McGlenn will team with All-Arena DB Terrance Sanders to improve a unit that ranked dead last in the AFL in passing defense a year ago, despite Sanders' record-breaking year. The squad will also bring back veteran assistance in Ruschard Dodd-Masters, Paul Stephens and Patrick Stoudamire, as well as rookies Josh Pleasant and Thad Turner. One area the Shock will not have to worry about in 2013 is the kicking game, as 2012 Kicker of the Year Kenny Spencer returns for his second season in the League. The talent in the West Division certainly has not diminished over the offseason' and if Spokane's rookie pool develops as anticipated, the competition for West Coast supremacy will only get more intense in 2013.
UTAH: The Utah Blaze, blessed with one of the most electric attacks in the Arena Football League in 2012, experienced a fair amount of turnover in their receiving corps during the offseason. Tysson Poots, one of the toughest young receivers in the game, bolted to division rival Arizona. Similarly, Alvance Robinson, who posted 1,015 receiving yards in 10 games with the Blaze last season, has been assigned to another ArenaBowl contender in Philadelphia. The Blaze didn't waste time mourning, however, bringing in potent weapons in L.J. Castile, who recorded 1,196 receiving yards for New Orleans last season, and Jared Jenkins, who reeled off 119 receptions for 1,610 yards as a rookie with the Milwaukee Mustangs last year. Castile and Jenkins will join Aaron Lesue ' who more than doubled his touchdown total from 27 in 2011 to 56 last season ' in providing Utah with a three-headed monster at the receiver position. Where it matters most, however, the Blaze have remained stable, with quarterback Tommy Grady coming back after a record-breaking year in Salt Lake City and Ben Stallings, the franchise's all-time leading rusher, returning to Utah for a third year. So long as the Blaze have Tommy 'The Tower' Grady, who accumulated an unbelievable 5,870 passing yards and 142 touchdowns last season, they will be head and shoulders above most defenses in the AFL ' literally and figuratively. On the defensive side of the ball, 'Sack Lake City' took a bit of a hit themselves with the departure of Mike Lewis, who compiled 23 sacks during his two years in Utah. Utah will now rely on Mike Alston to help keep offensive lines from doubling up on Caesar Rayford, who is the franchise record holder with 23.5 career sacks, and Keenan Mace, who flashed All-Arena potential as a rookie nose guard last season. With Mace and Rayford still donning the orange and black, the Blaze should be able to generate an above-average pass rush, which when combined with experienced defensive backs in Al Phillips and Josh Ferguson should lead to poise in their pass defense. Phillips and Ferguson will need to emerge as leaders, however, given that the Blaze have five rookie defensive backs on their roster at the moment, and veteran leader David Hyland remains a free agent. While the spotlight will surely shine on the Blaze as they attempt to wrest West Division supremacy from the Rattlers, attention should also be paid to an emerging rivalry between Utah and Spokane, from which the Blaze took offensive lineman Shannon Tevaga, as well as Alston and Ferguson.
