Three gifted players join Tri-Cities Fever

minorleagueTri-Cities Fever have proudly announced the return of Dustin Bell, who played for the team in 2011 and competed in the AFL for two years. His contribution to the team’s success in 2011 was considerable and he was one of the players who propelled them to the United Bowl Championship game. He had 32 tackles, three interceptions, two forced fumbles and he is expected to achieve something similar in 2014.

Coach Adam Shackleford said in a statement that transferring the player who competed for the Cleveland Gladiators in 2012 and New Orleans Voodoo last year, is going to propel the team to another final. It is hard to argue with him, as numbers speak for themselves and ever since he started playing football for Wilmer-Hutchins High, awards kept coming his way. He won the MVP and was just as successful playing as a quarterback as he was a cornerback, which makes him a highly versatile player for the Fever.

The team will also benefit from another addition, with Sean MacDonald bringing a wealth of experience to the backline, following his stellar seasons with Humboldt State of the Great Northwest Athletic Conference in California. He is expected to play both defense and offense and coach Adam Shackleford finds these abilities particularly useful, in the wake of the game day roster being reduced to 20 players.

The third player that will be competing for the Tri-Cities Fever in 2014 is Nduka who joins the team after a season with the Toronto Argonauts of the Canadian Football League. He is not a complete stranger to the IFL as he played for the Texas Revolution two years ago and posted four forced fumbles, six sacks and 25 tackles. He also played a critical role in the defense for the Sam Houston State and was considered one of the best outside linebackers and one of the best pass rushers

Tri-Cities Fever was lacking a player with this ability and that’s why the head coach is so thrilled with having Nduka in his team. Even though he only started playing football in college, following a successful stint with the local basketball team, Nduka proved his worth on the field countless times. With these three players joining the team in 2014, the Tri-Cities Fever promises to be more than a match for their traditional rivals and a strong candidate for the playoffs and even the United Bowl Championship.
