The Richmond Raiders have signed six players!
Carter, Stevens, and White and three new comers have been added to the team’s 2014 roster.
Defensive lineman James Carter (NC Wesleyan), kicker T.C. Stevens (Hampden-Sydney), and quarterback Malik White (Virginia State) are returning from the 2013 group who reached the PIFL Championship Game two times in a row!
The Raiders will have three newcomers added to their roster. Wide receiver Josh Young (Mars Hill), offensive lineman Rory Nixon (St. Augustine), and wide receiver DeAndre Clark (Oregon) are the first new recruits to make it to the list.
Young completed three touchdowns his senior season in 2012. He is, “a very talented and speedy wide receiver who had the ability to run by the defense, but also has very good route running ability,” according to Coach Fuller.
Nixon contributed in a major way on the offensive line as a four-year starter at St. Augustine. Coach Fuller says that, “We are glad to have Rory on our side instead of playing against him.”
Clark had a collegiate career for Mikee Bellotti at Oregon, where he gained indoor game experience. “DeAndre is a very talented player that can play DB or WR. We feel his versatility is going to be a plus.”
Don’t miss out on any of the action from these players this season. 2014 Season and group event tickets are now on sale!
