October 4, 2010 – Spokane, WA: The Spokane Shock announced today that LB Micah King has been added to the 2011 roster.
King, 5-11 240, spent the last two seasons in Iowa as a member of the Barnstormers. Last season, King registered 43 tackles with 5.5 sacks and one fumble recovery, returned for a touchdown. The previous season, in the af2, King recorded 27.5 tackles with one sack and four fumble recoveries.
“He’s very strong for his size and he’s very quick and elusive,” Head Coach Rob Keefe said. “Statistically, he’s one of the best MACs (linebackers) in the league. I think he is going to complement our defense very well.”
The fact that Spokane has moved up several players over the years is something that resonated with King and made joining this team appealing.
“The opportunity to fulfill my future and move up made Spokane the best choice for me,” King explained. “They have a winning tradition and they have been putting players back outdoors. This is a stepping stone for me and I’m looking forward to it.”
Over the years, Iowa’s fan base has built up a reputation that is similar to Spokane’s.
“I experienced it first-hand. My first season in the af2, we played Spokane (in Spokane) and their fans were just as rowdy as ours,” King said. “I love going in and seeing a strong fan base.”
In two games against Spokane, both in 2009, King recorded three tackles and one touchdown. King is the 24th player added to the 2011 roster.
