Frederick, three others honored by af2

The arenafootball2 all-star teams were announced today, and the Spokane Shock had three players named to the National Conference first team.

UPDATE: Here’s a link to Jim Meehan’s story, which explains why so few Shock were picked.

Wide receiver/linebacker Charles Frederick, who caught the winning touchdown pass in Spokane’s 50-47 playoff victory over Bakersfield on Saturday, offensive line specialist Ed Ta’amu and defensive specialist Rob Keefe all earned first-team honors.

Lineman Jerome Stevens was a second-team choice.

Despite having the best regular-season record in the af2 at 14-2, the Shock’s four honorees trailed the number picked from Florida (with six selections split between first and second team), Louisville and Oklahoma City (five each).

The af2 will dole out the remainder of its awards through Aug. 22, when the Ironman of the Year will be announced.
