Warriors do battle in Utah
11/14/02 Warriors Press Release
The Utah Warriors are storming into Utah. However, these Warriors do not throw spears, they throw spirals. The Warriors are the newest members to the NIFL and are looking forward to a successful first season.
Head coach Lee Leslie has been very proactive with his initial player contacts and has high hopes that our new players will have an immediate impact for our team and also set a standard both on and off the field for the rest of our incoming recruits. Coach Leslie stated “I know it will be exciting to bring a new team into Utah and feel with the caliber of players we are signing and those who are showing interest, we will have a very competitive year.”
The newest members of the Warriors are Jeff Main, Jason Quinn, Jason Potter, Tyler Anderson, and Carlos Nunio. Main played for Snow Jr. College in Utah and for Idaho State University before playing last season with the Billings Outlaws. Quinn played for Dixie J.C., the Utah Catzz and Rattlers and also had a free agent tryout with the Green Bay Packers. Both Main and Quinn played in the NIFL championship game with the Billings Outlaws. Jason Potter was an All-MWC defensive back at the University of Utah while both Anderson and Nunio were at B.Y.U. Anderson was a wide receiver and also starred with the Utah Catzz from the defunct Professional Indoor Football League. Nunio played with both the Philadelphia Eagles and Miami Dolphins preseason squads before playing with the Berlin Thunder in Europe where they won the NFL Europe championship.
The Warriors will be holding an open tryout. Dates, times and location will soon be announced.
