The Spokane Shock announced today that QB Casey Hansen has been added to the 2010 roster. Hansen, 6-5 230, spent the 2009 season with the ArenaCup Champion Shock – his first season in the Arena game.
During the regular season, Hansen played in 11 games and completed over 72% of his passes (42/58) including 13 touchdown passes without a single interception. Hansen finished the season with a 141.02 QB rating, the highest on the team.
“Last season, Casey came in as a rookie and put up some good numbers. He earned the right to compete for a spot as the starting QB for the upcoming season,” Head Coach Rob Keefe said. “He is familiar with our system and when you combine that with his physical ability that makes for a good QB.”
Hansen will work under the tutelage of new Offensive Coordinator, Matthew Sauk. As one of the most prolific quarterbacks to play the position, Sauk was recently inducted into the af2’s Hall of Fame after he passed for 17,142 yards with over 300 touchdowns.
Last year, Sauk said that he was impressed with Hansen and saw some similarities to his game when he was a young QB.
“Even though Casey was a rookie last year, he already seemed comfortable in the Arena game,” Sauk explained. “When you are a QB in the Arena game and you are not comfortable, it will show. Unlike most rookies, he gets the ball out early. But in order for him to take his game to another level, he is going to have to really get into the playbook and study it to get more and more comfortable.”
Prior to joining the Shock in 2009, Hansen signed a free agent contract with the Philadelphia Eagles before being released in training camp. He capped off his collegiate career in 2008 after two years at Norfolk State. As a Spartan, Hansen accumulated 4,277 passing yards with 19 touchdowns.
