    Saw it the other day, af2 is a developement league



    Corpus Christi Sharks Vice President/General Manager Larry Linde announced today the af2 team has been assigned former Lehigh QB Sedale Threatt Jr. Threat is the son of former NBA journeyman Sedale Threatt Sr..

    Threatt Jr. worked out for the team towards the end last season and showed a lot of athletic ability. The Sharks have been without a back-up QB since the departure of Dane King. Not wanting to go down the stretch without a true QB to behind Gary Cooper, Head Coach Michael Trigg called Threatt to check on his availability. Threatt immediately boarded a plane and headed to Corpus Christi. “Sedale brings a lot to the table,” said Trigg. “He has a strong arm, the ability to scramble in the pocket and buy time, and can beat with his legs”. “We’re excited about having an athlete with his ability on our roster”, Trigg added.

    In his Mountain Hawk career, Threatt threw for 4,622 yards and 35 touchdowns. Threatt also rushed for an additional 1,093 yards and 17 TD’s.


    Sharks Once Again No Match for Battle Wings
    Bossier City LA – Saturday night at the Century Tel Center was just another chapter in the same book as the Battle Wings (5-5) took advantage of six turnovers on their way to a 79-29 win over the Sharks (2-8). The Sharks offense struggled all night long behind Gary Coopers 4 interceptions and the defense was once again ineffective.





    In a joint announcement from Vice President/General Manager Larry Linde and Head Coach Michael Trigg the Sharks have decided to go in a new direction at Quarterback. The team announced that they have released QB Gary Cooper and decided to go with Lehigh Rookie Sedale Threatt.
    “We have to start playing better and start taking care of the football”, said Trigg. “We have an obligation to our fans and sponsors to put players on the field that take responsibility for their actions, and that have a team concept. At this point Sedale represents that player”, Trigg added.

    The Sharks are a disappointing 2-8 after the latest loss to the Bossier Shreveport Battle Wings. Coming in to the 2009 season the Sharks had numerous expectations, the first of which was the franchise’s first trip to the post season. Despite the disappointing record, the sharks sit just 2 games out of the final playoff spot.

    New Sharks QB Threatt during Sharks Overtime, which airs on ESPN 1230, had this to say about the task laid out for him by Coach Trigg. “I am going to go in there and lead by example and take control of this offence”. “Bottom line, I’ll do whatever it takes to win”, he added.

    In addition to the release of Cooper, the Sharks also placed defensive lineman Darius Robinson and defensive back Roshawn Marshall on team suspension for “conduct detrimental to the team”. Further details of the suspensions were not released.

    Threatt will get his first professional start this Saturday at the American Bank Center when the Sharks take on their hated rival Rio Grande Valley.

    Corps Christi, TX – The Corpus Christi Sharks (2-9) appeared to be heading to an upset win over the Dorados to keep their playoff hopes alive. A defensive to open the fourth quarter however ended the Sharks bid for an upset. Craig Turner returned a 64 yard Nick Gatto missed field goal attempt all the way back to the Corpus Christi 11 yard line which set up Nick Hill to Bret Smith 11 yard TD pass which put Rio Grande Valley (6-4) up by 10. It was a lead the Sharks would not overcome.

    The Sharks did make the end interesting. Following Sedale Threatt’s third rushing TD of the night which allowed the Sharks to close to within 3 point, Nick Gatto’s onside kick appeared to be recovered by Sharks DB Scott Felando. In a controversial call, the official ruled that Felando never had possession of the ball and the Dorados came away from the ensuing scrum with possession and were able to run out the clock.

    In his professional debut, Threatt put up decent numbers behind an offensive line that didn’t provide much protection all night. Threatt was 19 of 34 for 186 yards and 2 scores. Threatt thrilled the American Bank Center crowd though with his running ability. His 23 yard scamper to pay dirt at the 7:29 mark of the fourth brought the entire arena to their feet and left potential Dorado tacklers grasping at air.
    The loss probably ended any hope the Sharks had of reaching the post season. Corpus Christi sits two games out of the final playoff spot with 5 to play.

    The Sharks now have to regroup before hitting the road to take on the Oklahoma City Yard Dawgz. Corpus Christi beat the Dawgz at the ABC back on Memorial Day, but, Oklahoma City has played much better as of late posting back to back wins over Arkansas and Milwaukee. The game can be heard on ESPN 1230 beginning at 6:40 followed by a 7:05 kickoff.

    Dawgz Chew Up Sharks 93-41
    Oklahoma City, OK – The Oklahoma City Yard Dawgz (7-5), took advantage of numerous miscues and six turnovers to down the Corpus Christ Sharks (2-10), 93-41.

    Corpus Christ, already trailing by 8, fell into an early hole when QB Sedale Threatt’s second pass of the game was intercepted by Tito Jose for a touchdown. On the very next offensive possession, Threatt fumbled the snap setting up a rare WR Al Hunt 2 yard TD pass to QB Robert Kent. The two point conversion was good and the Sharks were facing a 22 point deficit.

    In his first action since returning to Corpus Christi, QB John De Los Santos got far more snaps then anticipated. De Los Santos couldn’t shake off the rust going 10-25 for 173 yards, 3 picks and 4 TD’s.

    Questions abound now for the Sharks as they head into the second to last home game of the 2009 season this Saturday night against the Kentucky Horseman. The first and foremost will be who starts at QB.
