PITTSBURGH: Pittsburgh's power stems from its secondary. Coming off a season in which the Power led the Arena Football League in both total defense and pass defense, the team only bolstered its defensive backfield during the offseason, bringing in All-Arena Jack linebacker Alvin Ray Jackson and veteran defensive back Sergio Gilliam to mesh with the franchise's career interceptions leader, Chris LeFlore. Jackson immediately gives Pittsburgh an edge at the Jack position, after snagging 14 interceptions ' more than any Jack in the history of the League ' with the New Orleans VooDoo last season. Meanwhile, Gilliam led the Kansas City Command with six interceptions and LeFlore led the Power with nine interceptions last season. With Gilliam and LeFlore in place, the Power should be more adequately prepared for the potential loss of leading tackler Bryan Williams. On the defensive line, Dominie Pittman was intriguing as a rookie last season. The team will need a big year from him, especially if fellow lineman Anthony Degrate does not return to the squad. The defense will need to be sound if the Power are to earn their first playoff berth in franchise history. On offense, Pittsburgh boasts a number of interesting, yet unproven, options. Pittsburgh's Achilles' heel the last two seasons has been the quarterback position. Coach Derek Stingley hopes to change that this year with the addition of former LSU signal-caller Jordan Jefferson. Though a tremendous talent, Jefferson is still an unproven commodity who will have to beat out fellow rookie Shane Austin and third-year journeyman Steven Sheffield for the job. There will also be an interesting battle at fullback, with last season's starter, Tyre Young, competing for carries with Kirby Griffin ' who took last year off after helping the Jacksonville Sharks to an ArenaBowl championship in 2011 ' and Jason Ford ' who ranks second in Illinois history with 26 career touchdowns. Question marks still remain at the receiver position, however. The franchise's career receiving leader, Mike Washington, returns for a third season as the squad's clear number one target, but the next three receivers on the team's 2012 depth chart all remain free agents. The biggest name on the list is undoubtedly former Ironman of the Year, PJ Berry, who has starred as a receiver and kick return specialist over the last three seasons. The team is also currently without the big play abilities of Oderick Turner and Randy Hymes, who are both unassigned to this point. On the team's current depth chart, the recently acquired Shamar Graves comes in as the second-most experienced wideout on the roster after hauling in 29 passes with the Jacksonville Sharks last season. Though the team is certainly not devoid of talent at the position, bringing in another veteran receiver ' whether a new face or one from last year's squad ' may likely be on the immediate agenda. In the kicking game, Pittsburgh hopes that new acquisition Josh Smith can help the team move up from a dreadful 70 percent conversion rate on extra-point attempts last season. Coach Stingley insists this will be a very interesting training camp for Pittsburgh and with plenty of talented, yet unproven options, Power fans will want to stay tuned during the month of March.
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.
