The Spokane Shock announced today that QB Kyle Rowley will return to Spokane for the 2011 season.
Rowley is the seventh member of the 2010 ArenaBowl Champion roster to re-sign with the team. Last season, Rowley set the single season franchise record for passing yards (4,428) and passing touchdowns (100). In Spokane’s 69-57 win over the Tampa Bay Storm in the ArenaBowl, Rowley was selected as the game’s MVP after he completed 75% of his passes for 237 yards with nine passing touchdowns (an ArenaBowl record).
“I don’t think there is a better quarterback in the league than Kyle Rowley,” Head Coach Rob Keefe explained. “This is the ultimate team sport and you need a quarterback who has good leadership qualities, understands the game and is willing to do whatever it takes to win a game. We have that now with Kyle Rowley.”
Although Rowley did field offers from other teams, ultimately it was clear that Spokane was the best place for him to continue finding success in his career.
“I really appreciate the way that the Shock and Coach Keefe handle their operations. They are all about honesty and telling the hard truth if they have to,” Rowley explained. “I believe this is the best place to play for and to win Championships. Winning championships is the focus of the ownership all the way down to the Coaches, the players and everyone involved.”
Despite all of Rowley’s accomplishments in 2010, his hunger for another Championship has only grown.
“I know that we are going to have go back out and earn respect all over again,” Rowley explained. “Even though we won the whole thing we need to find a way to learn from our mistakes. A lot of people like to look back at Championship seasons and assume that it is perfect but it wasn’t. We could have won those games by more and that’s my focus for the upcoming season.”
