Jac is back

05/29/03 LandSharks Press Release

The Lake Charles LandSharks have reinstated WR Jacobe Austin for this weekend’s game against the Beaumont Drillers.  Austin, who has been out for the last four games due to personal problems, has 24 receptions for 221 yards and 4 touchdowns on the season.  Austin is averaging 9.21 yards per reception with a long of 31 yards.  Austin also has 8 kickoff returns for 162 yards and a touchdown (against Beaumont), averaging 20.25 yards per return with a long of 35 yards.

LandSharks Coach Kip Texada hopes Austin will bring the fire back to an offense that has struggled since the departure of Austin.  This will be a big game for Austin.  Austin was with the Louisiana Rangers, now the Beaumont Drillers, last year.  Austin is looking forward to playing again, especially against his former teammates.  Beaumont was also the last team Jacobe Austin played against.

This Saturday, May 31st, the LandSharks return to the Reef to host the Beaumont Drillers.  The LandSharks defeated the Drillers 61-20 in Week 6.  On June 7th, the LandSharks will travel to Austin, Texas to battle the Austin Rockers.  Keep up-to-date with the latest news from the Lake Charles LandSharks by visiting our website at www.landsharksfootball.com or visit the NIFL website at nationalindoorfootballleague.net and follow the links.
