The Carolina Speed Add More Strength and Size

Carolina Speed Add More Strength and Size on Their Offensive and Defensive Lines

In the AIFA, it is very important on defense to put pressure on the quarterback and on offense to keep pressure away from the quarterback. The Speed coaching staff felt that they needed to go out and get the best of the best so that they have a very strong offensive and defensive line.

Marcus Huntley played college ball a little up the road at Catawba College where he had a very successful college career. He was the 2003 Freshman of the Year, Pre-Season All American, and a four year All Conference Player. Marcus had work outs for Minnesota and Cleveland and was predicted to be a top free agent after the draft. “Marcus is one of those players that slip through the cracks like many other players that should be playing at the next level,” said Head Coach Ervin Bryson. Marcus is very pleased to be playing with the Speed in front of his family and friends again.

The Speed also signed Defensive Lineman Curtis Issac who played at Louisiana Lafayette. During his senior year, Curtis had 43 tackles (12 for lost yardage), 6.5 sacks, and 1 forced fumble. His speed, size, and strength will make him a dominant force in this league. Curtis feels playing with the Speed will give him an opportunity to be recognized by the next level scouts.

On the offensive side of the ball, the Speed is proud to announce the signing of Bennitt “Big Moe” Waddell. Big Moe is a 6’6, 330lbs. offensive lineman with a ton of experience. He has played in the NFL with the Minnesota Vikings, NFL Europe, CFL, and AF2. Early injuries set Big Moe back a little, but he is hungry to get back to playing football again.
Speed season and individual tickets are on sale now at the Cabarrus Arena Box Office. For more information, call 704-920-3805.
